High-pressure resin transfer molding (HP-RTM)

In HP-RTM (High-Pressure Resin Transfer Molding) process, the first step is building up a fiber preform. A very low-viscosity, reactive resin is injected into the cavity at high pressure ensuring that each individual fiber is wetted and that there are not any air voids.

Benefits

  • Visible structural component
  • Premium quality sporty carbon look
  • Trailblazer for other lightweight components
  • Maximum structure load capacity
  • Low weight, approx. 50% lighter than metal structure

Core features

  • Virtually unidirectional reinforcement with endless fiber
  • High-pressure technology allows the use of fast-curing systems
  • High fiber contents of nearly 70 percent
