Light RTM – Efficiently producing environmentally cleaner mouldings consistently

Light RTM – Efficiently producing environmentally cleaner mouldings consistently

This closed mould process uses a light weight glassfibre countermould, matched to an “A” mould with the calibrated part dimension as the cavity.

Vacuum pressure not only locks the moulds together, but also assists with mould filling via a low-pressure resin injector.

NCS Resins stocks mould making accessories and can assist with low pressure resin injection machinery supplied by Magnum Venus Plastech (MVP).

Light RTM means faster and less costly mouldmaking in comparison to classic RTM high pressure injection. Optimizing countermould use can mean one mould can service three “A” moulds in production.

NCS Resins can supply the materials and accessories to manufacture RTM Light Tooling coupled with advice on tooling design.
