RTM, Resin Transfer Moulding. This manufacturing process performs with a closed mould formed by two or more parts, once are closed, a cavity is formed in which tissue and other parts are placed to produce the part. Once the mould is closed proceeds to resin injection.
Two types RTM and RTM-light which differ primarily in the working pressures for the mould and resin.
Our materials EFLOW, EFLOW PLUS and EFLOW SURFACE are ideal for these production processes; the core of polypropylene allows the passage of the resin in the mould. They are products with high deformability so that can be adapted to the shape of the mould. And with the EFLOW SURFACE get an excellent surface finish.
Production proces in which the resin is infused into a sealed mold without air.
In this process is necessary to apply all layers of fabrics and composites, including one or more layers of specific infusion composite, close and seal the mold. Once the mold is without air, we ensured that the resin fills the entire mold.
With this system it is possible to reduce the amount of resin used and the waste. Also have better dimensional control of the part.
Suitable products for this process are:
-Fast Flow, which includes a mesh especially designed to facilitate and speed up the passage of the resin through the layers of composite
The fabrics and composite fiberglass can be applied manually directly to existing moulds or to repair/reinforce existing parts
The porduct most suitable for this type of production process are:
-Stitchi Mat (SM)
