|57||New processing technologies for high-performance thermoplastic composites
The cost effective manufacturing processes enable automated production of high-performance thermoplastic composite parts and their joining into a geometric complex shape.
|34||Specialized vacuum-assisted resin transfer method for infusing fabric-based composites
Novel manufacturing methods for the creation of carbon or glass composite materials and structures through the use of a specialized vacuum assisted resin transfer method. This process yields a stronger composite than standard infusion processes. Results are near the same as composites made by autoclaving woven or non-woven materials however the time and costs are substantially less than autoclaved composites.
