Complex cores for CFRP primary structural products manufactured with high pressure RTM


For complex shaped primary structural CFRP components, multi-part metal core tools are used due to non-releasable areas in the product. The topic aims to develop innovative core tools (using for instance elastomers or shape memory polymers) for these type of products and validate that the process parameters associated to RTM injection will not compromise the cured product quality (compared to products using metal cores), without incurring a large penalty in component weight and cost. Please refer to the full topic descriptions document published in this call.
