CASCELL® RS is a specially developed material designed to serve as a structural core in vacuum infusion processes like VARI (Vacuum Assisted Resin Infusion) and RTM (Resin Transfer Molding). It finds application in various industries, including aviation, aerospace, and sports equipment, where weight reduction is a critical factor.
Structural Core Material: CASCELL® RS is engineered to function as a structural core in composite manufacturing processes. Its purpose is to provide strength, rigidity, and structural integrity to composite components while keeping their weight to a minimum.
Vacuum Infusion Compatibility: CASCELL® RS is designed specifically for use in vacuum infusion processes like VARI and RTM. It is compatible with these processes, which involve the injection of resin into a vacuum-sealed mold or component, ensuring consistent and uniform impregnation of the core material.
Weight Reduction: CASCELL® RS contributes to weight reduction in composite components. By using CASCELL® RS as a structural core, manufacturers can significantly reduce the overall weight of the final product without compromising strength and structural integrity.
Mechanical and Thermomechanical Properties: CASCELL® RS exhibits mechanical and thermomechanical properties similar to those of CASCELL® WH. It provides the necessary strength, stiffness, and durability required for structural applications in demanding industries such as aviation and aerospace.
Reduced Resin Absorption: CASCELL® RS features a smaller cell size compared to CASCELL
® WH. This smaller cell size leads to reduced resin absorption, resulting in more efficient resin utilization during the vacuum infusion process. CASCELL® RS can absorb approximately 30% less resin than CASCELL® WH.
Bonding of Facings: CASCELL® RS achieves a satisfactory bonding of facings (outer layers) to the core material. The optimal compromise between low resin absorption and satisfactory bonding ensures a strong and reliable bond between the core and the facings, enhancing the overall structural integrity of the composite component.
Aerospace and Aviation Applications: CASCELL® RS finds extensive use in the aerospace and aviation industries, where weight reduction is crucial. It is employed in the manufacturing of components such as aircraft interiors, panels, structural elements, and sports equipment.
Sports Equipment: CASCELL® RS is also utilized in the production of lightweight sports equipment, including skis, snowboards, surfboards, and other athletic gear. Its high strength-to-weight ratio and compatibility with vacuum infusion processes make it an excellent choice for achieving optimal performance in sports applications.
Cascell® RS is specially developed for use as a structural core in connection with vacuum infusion processes, such as VARI and RTM. It is applied in components of aviation, aerospace, sports equipment with resin injection process to reduce the weight. Its mechanical and thermomechanical properties are similar to those of Cascell® WH. Its cell size, which is smaller, achieves an optimal compromise between low resin absorption-about 30% less than for Cascell® WH-and satisfactory bonding of the facings to the core.
