The paper presents a complete description of the design and manufacturing process of a CF/epoxy mold integrated with a CF resistor heater and intended for an out of autoclave curing
of VBO prepregs.
The effect of steel fiber content of 1%~3% under autoclave curing
is indicated in G3, owing to the fact that it is the most economic ratio.
The adopted reinforcement should mimic the compression behavior of those used to fabricate prepregs, usually compressed either during impregnation either during lay up, vacuum bagging and autoclave curing
, so that the volume fraction of fiber ([V.sub.f]) is close to 60%.
The operation produces complex composite structures utilizing the latest carbon material and autoclave curing
High strength concrete could be achieved by incorporating ground quartz sand and fine stone dust as a partial cement replacement in an autoclave curing
system (Jaafar et al.
is required for certain types of high-performance composites.
The widespread method of autoclave curing
, it says, makes part handling complicated, the process is time-consuming, and the quality of process control is not satisfactory.
Techniques include pressure moulding and high temperature autoclave curing
Finally, a production part may be cured under pressure as in compression, transfer or injection molding, under pressure as in autoclave curing
, or without pressure as in LCM or microwave and hot air curing.
temperatures greater than 800F (412C) are easily handled by the nickel tooling.
With the possible exception of the extremely low operating temperature of the focal-plane environment described elsewhere, the autoclave curing
cycle, encountered during fabrication, is probably the most severe environment to which the interconnects (and the other integrated optical components) will be subjected.
