An Introduction to the Resin Infusion Process

The resin infusion process is a process used in the composite field. The resin is used to fill any holes or gaps in material that may cause issues later on during the finishing process. When you’re researching the resin infusion process, you might not be able to find a complete guide of how it works, […]

Compression Molding: How It Works

  Compression molding is a standard process used to make stock shape thermoplastic and thermoset materials and parts. Broadly speaking, you put a pre-heated plastic material into an open, heated mold cavity. The mold is then closed by a hydraulic press and compressed. This ensures the content in the mold comes into contact with all […]
