Automated Use of Release Film for Hot Pressing Prepregs
Release agents are necessary for the automated production of CFRP with prepregs in hot pressing. Liquid release agents can lead to contamination or residues on the component and in the process. An alternative to this is a flexible plasma-coated release film. After curing, the components can be coated or bonded without the need for time-consuming grinding or activation.Beitrag auf Deutsch lesen
