Newly Developed Rubber Pressure Molding Technique for Fabrication of Composites

Abstract

A new manufacturing method, i.e., rubber pressure molding (RPM) for processing of long fiber/fabric-reinforced polymer composites having complex geometry, is developed. Studies are conducted for performance evaluation of the newly proposed RPM using silicone, natural, polybutadiene, and styrene–butadiene rubbers. Polyester and epoxy resin are used with glass fiber fabric to manufacture the fiber-reinforced plastic (FRP) products.
