Cristex offers a large range of products suitable for Infusion Moulding, RTM, RTM Light, VARTM and Compression Moulding. The process of RTM is done using a rigid two-sided mould set that forms both surfaces of the panel. The two sides fit together to produce a mould cavity. A key feature of resin transfer moulding is that the reinforcement materials are placed in the cavity and closed prior to the introduction of matrix material. Resin transfer moulding includes numerous variations which differ in the mechanics of how the resin is introduced to the reinforcement in the mould cavity.
