Functional textile solutions for VAP® resin infusion technology
Trans-Textil provides quality-assured membrane systems for use with fibre reinforced composites in a wide range of applications. Optimised in line with the respective requirements, they demonstrate particular strengths in terms of controllable gas permeability and in acting as a barrier to various resins.
In the production of fibre-reinforced plastic components on the basis of membrane-supported VAP® technology, liquid resin is poured into moulds and the whole structure is covered with a membrane system made by Trans-Textil. Air molecules trapped in the resin can cause fractures and thus have to be extracted under vacuum. In this, the membrane systems by Trans-Textil fulfil two purposes: they hold the resin in shape and offer micropores through which gasous molecules are able to escape reliably.
Trans-Textil GmbH is the exclusive manufacturer of the VAP® membrane systems and owns together with AIRBUS patents on membrane products and processes in the field of vacuum infusion.
