Injection Molding of Polyurethane Resin for impact-resistant structural composite parts
Parts out of composites need to demonstrate high impact toughness and halogen-free fire protection for application in aeronautical structures. Within this EU-cooperation-project PRISCA, materials and methods are developed to produce polyurethane components with resin transfer molding (RTM). The main objectives are increased impact toughness and the implementation of a manufacturing process for medium length production runs of monolithic and sandwich structures. To optimize the manufacturing process, a short-time testing methodology is going to be developed at WPT, to enable a resource-efficient assessment of the influence of the manufacturing parameters on the fatigue behaviour.
