RTM/RIM

Resin Transfer Moulding (RTM)

A moulding process in which catalyzed resin is transferred into an enclosed mould into which the fibre reinforcement has been placed; cure normally is accomplished without external heat. RTM combines relatively low tooling and equipment costs with the ability to mould large structural parts.

 

Reaction Injection Moulding (RIM)

Two or more reactive liquids are mixed under high pressure together with a solid reinforcing material (eg, glass fibre, mineral fibre, glass beads) and injected into the mould where polymerisation completes to produce the finished composite. RIM is the only plastics process where the chemical reaction takes place in the mould. The polymer matrix is usually a thermosetting polyurethane (PU).
