Carbon fiber-polyurethane composites produces class A finish
By Stephen Moore | October 19, 2013
Düsseldorf — One key to increased penetration of carbon fiber-reinforced composites in the auto sector is reducing processing costs. The latest resin transfer molding (RTM) technology from KraussMaffei is touted as a high efficiency option that could accelerate adoption of such composites.
A production cell giving live demonstrations at the KraussMaffei booth (15/B27/C24/C27/D24) was manufacturing a production-line-ready carbon-fiber-reinforced roof shell with a polyurethane matrix (PUR) for the Roding Roadster R1 sports car.
