Lambient Technologies LLC, the leader in precision measurement solutions for the curing of advanced polymer materials, announces the release of a new white paper addressing the challenges in measuring material cure state in processes using release films, and in Vacuum Assisted Resin Transfer Molding (VARTM) applications.
In composite manufacturing, release films prevent the adhesion of parts to a tool. VARTM employs vacuum bags so that atmospheric pressure can compress a composite against a mold. The white paper, titled “Yes, You Can Measure Composite Cure through Vacuum Bags and Release Films,” details how such measurement is possible using AC-signal-based dielectric cure monitoring technology.
The white paper, written for engineering professionals working with advanced composites in industries such as aerospace, automotive, and wind energy, offers a detailed analysis of the advantages of DEA in manufacturing and research and development. As the only method that can measure cure state in real time under actual process conditions, DEA lets users apply laboratory results directly to manufacturing processes.
Lambient Technologies designs and produces instruments for real-time analysis of the curing of thermosets and advanced composite materials such as those used in aerospace, automotive, and wind power applications. Our products offer unique insights into how these materials react and change during curing, processing, and manufacturing. Armed with this critical data, users can proceed with research, quality testing, and final production, confident in the integrity of their processes and materials—and in the reliability of their finished products.
