RTM Training - Nov. 2-4, 2010 - Istanbul

METYX Second Biennial Composites Summit - Day 2 Presentation
This three-day RTM training will be led by Composite Integration, a METYX Composites partner. Composite Integration Ltd provides practical technical support and consultancy in all aspects of closed mold processing. Richard Bland and Stephen Williams, Co-directors of Composite Integration, will conduct the training. The targeted RTM content will include both theory and hands-on practice 

The course will cover the following content areas: 
  • Component design for process - An overview of various molding projects with case studies to highlight particular aspects of the process.
  • Pattern design and preparation - Materials for pattern construction, supporting structure, flange design, surface treatment, release agents and dimensional tolerances.
  • Mold construction - Complete and practical breakdown of each stage of the mold building process.
  • Mold building materials - Specification of tooling resins, gelcoats, core materials, etc. Epoxy, vinyl ester, polyester, low-profile and hybrid tooling systems.
  • Calibration Wax - Building an accurate molding cavity between the mold surfaces using sheet wax. Alternative calibration materials. Surface treatments. Release agents.
  • Vacuum - The use of vacuum to maintain accuracy during the mold building stages. Vacuum equipment and its application.
  • Mold sealing systems - The specification and application of various mold sealing systems. Alternative seal types (inflatable seals etc). Flange design to accommodate different seal types.
  • Injection / vent insert application - Optimum insert positioning for effective fill and minimum wastage. Types of injection port and injection valves.
  • Molded inserts - Threaded inclusions within the laminate. Conventional threaded insert carriers, magnetic insert carriers. Molding around cores. Specifying core materials - wood, foam, metal etc.
  • Injection materials - Specification of injection resins, accelerator and catalyst systems. Injection resins designed for optimum surface finish (low-profile). Fiber types including surface veils, fiber types. The use of woven and nonwoven directional fibers.
  • Release agent - Specification and use of release agents for different resin systems. Internal release agents.
  • Injection strategies - Mold layout and design for optimum performance. Injection and vent strategies for complex mold geometry.
  • Vacuum - The use of vacuum for injection and clamping purposes. Requirements for different vacuum levels and methods of achieving this.
  • Injection equipment - A comprehensive overview of different types of injection equipment. The application and use of injection equipment. The importance of pressure / flow control. Trouble shooting and machine maintenance.
