Multiaxials with powder binder for RTM

Among Selcom’s productions, a special place must be reserved for a type of multi-axial fabrics which is extremely strategic in the Resin Transfer Moulding (RTM) process. In this particular process, resin is forced into a mould using high pressures in order to achieve uniform filling. In order to guarantee the stability of the intended moulds, Selcom offers its range of multi-axial bindered fabrics, to which a powder binder (usually a thermosetting resin) has been applied.  The binder function is to guaranteed dry preforming shape geometry and to mantain reinforcement stability during the injection phase.

This is a solution particularly interesting for Supercars Automotive industry, where RTM is widely used to produce structural composite parts such as bonnets, roofs, doors, fenders, wings, etc.
