The MTI hose offers a practical solution to voids common to the vacuum infusion process. Using MTI hose in place of standard spiral tube for the evacuation venting in vacuum infusion process gives unprecedented void free results. [...]
The growth in closed molding continues with the low pressure molding processes of LRTM and Vacuum infusion (RSB) leading the industry away from open molding.
The days of using nylon bag film and butyl tacky tape is all but gone with the advancements made using reusable silicone bags (RSB). [...]
The key to repeatable molding process control in a RTM or LRTM tool is to have ACCURATE cavity thickness calibration. Most obvious consideration one would normally make is to use sheetwax of the same thickness desired for the final part thickness. [...]
