80 Second Cycle Time Epoxy RTM Structural Composite Demonstration

Live demonstration of Dow Automotive Systems VORAFORCE 5300 epoxy formulation for high-speed mass production of light-weight structural carbon-fiber automotive composites, via high-pressure resin transfer molding (RTM) process. Demonstration part: 540 x 290 x 2mm, 50vol% carbon fiber content. Total cycle time ~80 seconds. For further information, please contact us at
• 0:00 – Process start (press closes)
• 0:13 – Press is closed (mold is evacuated)
• 0:20 – Injection starts (injection approx. 10 secs)
• 0:30 – Injection complete, cure begins
• 1:10 – Mold opens (~40 secs after end of injection — this is “demold time”)
• 1:21 – Total cycle time (press is open and in safe position, part ejects)

The main activity of Global Basalt Engineering LLC is creation of effective productions on release of continuous basalt fiber (СBF) with technologies of the last generation and composites on the basis of СBF (Basalt Fiber-Reinforced Polymer Composites as BFRP).
