The thermal treatment of the substances happen in batches because of the typically occurring sealing against the surrounding atmosphere.
The high pressure inside the autoclave is used to compress the individual laminate layers. Generally, the component is simultaneously evacuated in order to completely remove excessive air from the fiber composite.
EURO-COMPOSITES® currently has two autoclaves in operation:
ø 2000 x 6000 mm (6 bar) respectively ø 3000 x 8000 mm (8 bar), with a 24-point respectively 40-point vacuum measuring system and curing temperatures of 180 ° C (standard) up to a maximum of 250 ° C.
