Resin Transfer Moulding (RTM)
Superior design flexibility to create complex shapes and forms, including compound curves.
Excellent, uniform dimensional tolerance: average+/- 1.0mm or
High fiber content - 25% to 50% fiber content by volume - creates a strong and light-weight finished product.
Molded inserts, fittings, cores, ribs, bosses, and reinforcements possible.
Low tooling fee reduces start-up costs and time-to-market.
High material recovery and improved labour efficiencies yield decreased component production costs.
