Resin Transfer Molding
Benefits of Resin Transfer Molding
RTM has several benefits when compared to other available processes, they include:
What is Light Resin Transfer Molding or LRTM?
Light Resin Transfer Molding or LRTM is similar to RTM above. The main difference is how the resin is injected into the mold.
RTM uses a diverging flow when injecting resin into the two mold halves. This mean the resin is injected in the center and flow out from the center to vents located on the corners or outer side of the mold. One of the biggest concerns with RTM is avoiding dry spots. LTRM solves this concern.
Light Resin Transfer Molding uses different tooling to allow the resin to be injected from an outer edge and allowed to converge unto the center of the mold. Whereas in RTM you don’t want the resin to race around the edge with LTRM it is designed to do so. This eliminates dry spots and create a higher quality mold.
