Nidaplast Composites hope to make infusion easier and less expensive with a customizable, ready-to-use product called Rovipan, due to be presented to attendees of this year’s Composites Europe. The company says that because of its mechanical properties this product is ideally suited to the transport and energy industries.
Rovipan combines a polypropylene honeycomb core with a nonwoven polyester surface and glass-fibre skins with integrated flow medium (Chomarat’s Roviflow). Nidaplast say that due to the honeycomb core, manufacturers using Rovipan can save on labour and therefore reduce the moulding cycle.
“It is an all-in-one, productivity-boosting material that is ready to use, easy to handle, and suitable for manufacturing large sandwich parts in 5-40-millimetre thicknesses,” according to Luc Nuttens, Development Engineer at Nidaplast Composites.
Nidaplast are keen to promote the environment-friendly aspects of the Rovipan infusion process, saying that it reduces consumption of raw materials, resin, and CO2 as well as cutting down on VOC emissions during processing. In addition to this, the company says that the polypropylene used in Rovipan is recyclable
