The company says that EASYPERM is the only system on the market that offers an industrial solution for measuring the permeability of a dry reinforcement through thickness and in-plane. It makes it possible to evaluate the capacity of reinforcement to be impregnated by a liquid resin. EASYPERM relies on pressure measurement via a network of sensors, which is then post-processed using Darcy's law. 

Fiber types

‘This is a crucial step in performing filling simulations for large and complex parts, but also for process optimization in the case of high production rate,” said Jérôme Raynal, PPE's sales and export director. ‘Particularly as it can be used to characterize all types of fiber (glass, carbon, aramid, flax, hemp, etc.), while minimizing the amount of material needed.’

‘EASYPERM uses a measurement technology which has been developed and used over the past ten years, but also integrates the latest developments in measurement precision,’ said Henri Perrin, PPE’s R&D manager.
