Infusion represents a class of closed mold manufacturing processes whereby dry fabric — carbon, glass, aramid or natural — is placed in a mold and infused with a liquid resin under heat and vacuum to distribute the resin throughout all fabric layers.
Composites One and the Closed Mold Alliance provide you with the latest information about closed mold technologies and the advantages, techniques and opportunities that the closed mold process has over open molding.
When open molders turn to infusion, careful planning, material selection and training precede process efficiency.
