E&F Composites has added the RIM/DCPD (Telene) process to the moulding capabilities at their Hartlepool site.
RIM/DCPD technology provides alternative solutions for the moulding of large, complex components which are lightweight, have a balance of stiffness and impact strength, chemical resistance, fast cycle times and moderate tooling costs.
This development compliments the existing range of processes and materials currently in the E&F product portfolio, including RTM, VARTM, RIM, SRIM and Spray-Hand lay up
