Resin Infusion (Scrimp)
Resin infusion is an environmentally friendly alternative to open molding. Resin infusion produces consistent, high-quality parts for products like pleasure boats and windmill blades. Using this process, large and complex structures are produced, and cores and inserts may be incorporated.
This process impregnates layers of dry reinforcement contained between a rigid, air-tight mold and a flexible sheet sealed to it around its perimeter. A partial vacuum is applied to the mold cavity before resin is allowed to infuse into the reinforcement under atmospheric pressure, impregnating both across and down through the reinforcement layers. The upper sheet is removed once resin Cure is complete, and the component may be removed.
