Resin Infusion Technologies Course

March 24th, 2022 by

Did you know that Abaris has a Resin Infusion Technologies course?  The M-5 course is designed for the engineer, technician, laminator, fabricator, or anyone else wanting to learn about the fundamental principles and more complex concepts involved in resin infusion technology as applied in many industries today.

The fundamental science that drives vacuum infusion processing (VIP) is explained and tested in the workshop. Materials, tooling, and application techniques are evaluated and applied with hands-on exercises and demonstrations. Students gain a theoretical understanding and practical hands-on experience necessary to employ vacuum resin infusion processing for their own applications.

Key Lecture Topics:

  • Overview of infusion techniques.
  • Fiber forms and material types used for infusion.
  • Specialty cores and fabrics.
  • Resins used for infusion.
  • Temperature, viscosity and permeability; Darcy’s Law.
  • Flow fronts; principles and designs.
  • Race-tracking and other inherent problems.
  • Resin feeder and vacuum systems.
  • Resin/fiber calculations.
  • Facilities, tools and equipment.

Workshop Exercises:

  • Fiber-pack/preform fabrication.
  • Placing and securing fibers/fabrics in molds.
  • Tool preparation and mold release application.
  • Installation of resin and vacuum plumbing.
  • Vacuum bagging for infusion.
  • Infusion exercises involving various shapes.
  • Solving infusion problems.
  • Identifying leaks and dry areas.
  • In-process repairs of dry areas.
  • Curing infused panels and parts.

This course also examines the pros and cons of infusion processing and defines the usefulness and limitations related to the VIP process. The class includes a basic overview of the necessary facilities and equipment required to set up and perform VIP in a production setting.
