Analysis of the processing of particle-filled, flame retardant resin systems in the RTM process
Fibre-reinforced plastics (FRP) are established within all fields of the transportation sector. At the same time they must not only compete with classical construction materials such as metals regarding lightweight, but additionally they have to fulfil the increasing requirements of fire, smoke and toxicity (FST) regulations. However the employment of fire-protected, ATH particle-filled laminates is limited so far on lining elements with inferior mechanical properties. Therefore the aim of a collaborative research project (AiF) was a detailed and systematic analysis of the processing of ATH particle-filled resin systems in the RTM process.
