PPE (Saint-Avold, France) will launch EASYPERM, a system for measuring and evaluating the ability of reinforcement to let resin flow, and for characterizing it in three dimensions. PPE says EASYPERM is the only system on the market that offers an industrial solution for measuring the permeability of a dry reinforcement through thickness (Z) and in-plane (X, Y). EASYPERM allows evaluation of the capacity of reinforcement to be impregnated by a liquid resin. EASYPERM is said to be a reliable quality control system because it relies on pressure measurement via a network of sensors, which is then post-processed using Darcy's law. EASYPERM's configuration also allows visual check of the flow front.
