How to Manufacture a Car Hood (Drag Car)

In this video, you’ll learn how to manufacture a carbon fiber/epoxy hood produced with a resin infusion process. The light weight hood is designed for use with a Honda Civic Drag car.

Necessary rock studies of the gabbro and andesite basalt groups for the suitability as the raw material base for the production of continuous basalt fiber (CBF). A unique technique including laboratory melting and pilot-industrial melting at the high-tech equipment.

Resin Infusion is a process by which vacuum draws resin into a dry fiber laminate in a one sided mold. A rigid or flexible film membrane is placed over the top and sealed around the mold periphery. Resin infusion is considered a “Closed Mold Process”.

The benefits of resin infusion when compared to non-vacuum bag curing of composite laminates include:
– Better fiber to Resin ratio
– Stronger laminate
– Low void content
– Reduce operator exposure to harmful emissions
– Reduce resin usage due to pre-compacted fabric – Faster Ply lay-up
