NCC exhibited its signature Rapid Fiber Preform (RFP) process, advanced closed molding techniques at Composites 2003.

RFP employs robotic arms to quickly place glass or carbon fibers on complex surfaces. The consistently high quality preforms produced by RFP are then easily set into a molding tool for resin injection and completion of the part. More conventional methods, such as hand or machine lay-up, require manual placement of fibers and are somewhat limited in the types of surfaces fibers can be applied to. The Center developed RFP’s capability to handle carbon fibers to meet the aerospace industry’s need for a cost effective composite material that can deliver high strength and stiffness at a low weight.

NCC teamed with Ashland Specialty Chemical Company and Why Not Composites in 2002 to establish a Closed Molding Cell at its headquarters and manufacturing facility. The Cell is being used to help educate the industry about improved closed molding techniques with a special emphasis on vacuum infusion.
