    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers compression molding, thermosetting, unsaturated polyester molding compounds as further defined in 3.1.

    1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.

    Note 1The properties included in this specification are those required to identify the types of molding compounds covered. There may be other requirements necessary to identify particular characteristics. These will be added to the specification as their inclusion becomes generally desirable and the necessary test data and methods become available.
    Note 2ISO 3672–1: 1979(E) is similar but not equivalent to this specification. Product classification and characterization are not equivalent.
