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.

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).

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
