Resin Transfer Moulding

RTM is a system where a closed mould is used and the finished product has a smooth surface on both sides.

The RTM process once the mould is fully prepared is as follows:

1. Gelcoat the mould, depending on the product no gelcoat maybe required.

2. Load fibreglass cloth and core (if required) into the mould and close the mould.

3. Then inject a pre-determined amount of catalyzed resin into the mould.

4. Depending on the type and size of the mould the part can be de-moulded in 60 to 120 minutes and the process can be repeated.

The Advantages of RTM

• Faster production

• Higher, consistent quality of products

• Consistent thickness

• Very little waste
