Question on glass-filled polyester

From: Vadim Pikhovich (

Perhaps this list isn't exactly the right place to post this kind of
question, but I will try anyway. I have a spec on a glass-filled polyester
that looks as follows:

material SMC TYP 832 LP DIN 16913 UP GF M6.400-50-2

Can anyone help me interpret this? I understand that SMC stands for Sheet
Moulded Compound, and that LP stands for Low Profile, i.e. low shrink.
Also, UP is Unsaturated Polyester GF - glass filled. But what about some of
these numbers? Ultimately I am trying to figure out the mechanical
properties of this material.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Vadim Pikhovich
