On the smc continuous line, a paste is delivered onto a carrier film. a cutter adds a layer of chopped glass fibers on top of the paste & the paste is then metered on to a second film along with glass. Fibers to form a sandwich. Rollers then treat the  sandwich to impregnate the fibers with the two paste layers. The sheet is wound into a coil and the smc is then metered to a leather like sheet ready for customization.
