Fiber Reinforced Composites

fibra continua

Fiber Reinforced Composites (FRC) are materials greatly used in different sectors (automotive, aeronautics, construction, sport, energy, etc.) due to the increased performances in terms of mechanical properties and lower weight compared to traditional materials, as well as chemical and thermal resistance. However, identified limitation in the FRC market is the necessity of high performance resins at competitive prices, specifically for Resin Transfer Moulding (RTM) and infusion processes. FRC are composed of fibres and a resin to provide consistency. Nevertheless, as a result of the fatigue during its intensive use, these materials might undergo crack formation, which propagation throughout the resin…
