Autoclave Molding/Curing of Prepregs
Autoclave curing is the method of choice to produce monolithic or sandwich composite parts of ultimate quality and performance. The heat, pressure and vaccum conditions create dense, void free moldings with high strength/weight ratio parts.
Autoclave Molding TechniqueSeveral layers of Prepregs are polymerised under hydrostatic pressure and a vacuum in an autoclave. Extreme heat and pressure removes air pockets and creates extremely strong composite materials.
Main Benefits of Autoclave Molding• Accurate resin to fiber ratio
• Highest quality impregnation
• Versatile process
• Precise heat regulation allows for very uniform quality
• Precise molding tolerances
• Componants are easy to handle, mess-free
