Vacuum Injection Conference

Make your own composite parts - with ebalta

ebalta a leading supplier of polyurethane and epoxy systems recently invited a group of customers to a composites conference at the ebalta head quarters and manufacturing site in Rothenberg-ob-der-Tauber, Germany. The participants were offered the opportunity to manufacture their own composite parts to see for themselves the advantages of vacuum injection technology, also known in the market as resin infusion.

The 2 day composites conference was specifically designed to allow the customers to get first-hand experience with this technology. On the first day, detailed demonstrations and explanations of the process were provided by ebalta's composites expert Stefan Koppmair. For the purpose of the demonstrations a scaled car bonnet was produced inside a heatable nickel shell (made by means of ebalta and fibretemp technology), post cured at about 70°C and demoulded after 2 hours.

By the second day the customers had acquired the skills and knowledge to produce their required parts through vacuum injection almost on their own. Resin infusion technology was successfully used to produce bubble-free carbon fibre laminates and solid glass laminates for high-strength water jet cutter take-up applications, proving this technology could be utilised to meet the special requirements of the customers.

The conference was excellently organised and very instructive with the majority of the time being hands-on with the technology. It offered participants the opportunity to speak directly with ebalta technical specialists, get advice on any design, product or application questions and to determine the best solutions for their specific projects.

To arrange any training or if you have any questions regarding vacuum injection and composite resins please contact Stefan Koppmair directly at skoppmair@ebalta.de.
