The German Federation of Reinforced Plastics (AVK) has set up a new website for its Euro resin transfer molding (RTM) Group.

The group focuses on RTM as a forward-looking production technique for glass fiber reinforced plastics (GRP). The purpose of the group continues to be to increase in the level of awareness in the GRP industry about the many different RTM options which are available for the production of moulded parts. The new website, found here, covers the available options and also suitable contacts for interested parties.

‘[With RTM,] it is possible to achieve a high level of flexibility in potential materials, a consistently high quality of components and the option of a high fibre volume content,’ the organization said in a press release. ‘As a result, RTM has become one of the greatest carriers of hope for the serial manufacturing of composites in recent years.’
