196 SUPERCRITICAL FLUIDS
Supercritical fluids are involved in a wide variety of applications which have shown a significant progress in recent years. Many industrial sectors are concerned including cosmetics, pharmaceutics, materials, chemistry or energy. Other areas are in rapid development such as the cleaning of mechanical parts or the surface preparation of microelectronics. It should be noted that water (Tc = 374 °C, Pc = 221 bars), which critical point is higher than that of CO2 (Tc = 31 °C, Pc = 74 bars), is nevertheless very much studied as a reaction medium, finding applications in the synthesis of nanoparticles and the recovery and treatment of waste.

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.
