Resin Transfer Moulding (RTM) and Resin Infusion (RI) Familiarisation
This course is an introduction to ‘Closed Moulding’, including examples of various projects and the differences between the various types (Resin Infusion, RTM, Light RTM, VRTM, HPRTM etc.). There will be a general explanation with the fundamental principles of the different processes, considerations relating to pressure and vacuum, advantages and disadvantages of the each process.
