What is Resin Infusion?
Resin infusion is a sophisticated technique for manufacturing high performance, void free composites even on large or complicated moulds. The process is ideally suited to the manufacture of carbon fibre composites and is widely used by professional manufacturers for the production of carbon fibre body panels such as bonnets and by marine manufacturers for the production of boat hulls, making this product ideal as a carbon fibre infusion kit. It is however, equally suited to the manufacture of smaller detailed items that would be all but impossible to make successfully using an open layup.
Reinforcement is laid into the mould ‘dry’, i.e. without any resin, and then enclosed in a specially configured stack of bagging materials (such as peel ply, infusion mesh and bagging film) before being subjected to vacuum pressure using a composites vacuum pump. Once all the air has been removed from the bag and the reinforcement has been fully compressed under atmospheric pressure, liquid epoxy resin (mixed with hardener) is introduced to the reinforcement through a pipe which then infuses through the reinforcement under the vacuum. Once the resin has fully infused through the reinforcement, the supply of resin is cut off (using a pipe clamp) and the resin is left to cure, still under vacuum.
In common with all Marjan Polymer Industries starter kits, our Resin Infusion Complete Starter Kit is the result of years of practical experience working with these materials, equipment and processes every day. Many of the connectors and pieces of equipment included in the kit are manufactured by us.
