Rhino’s Vacuum Assisted Resin Transfer Molding (VARTM) or Liquid Resin Infusion technology is a closed composite manufacturing process in which dry fibers are laid on the tool and vacuum sealed while Rhino 1310T liquid resin and hardener. The resin is pulled into the mould by negative pressure to impregnate the fibers already laid out in the mould. This liquid resin technology provides for lower cost and lower cure temperatures.
Since the liquid resin techniques do not require curing cycles over 60°C, the tooling is much easier to construct. Liquid resin infusion forms a uniform composite of nearly ideal 65% fiberglass to 35% resin by weight.
