Composite Manufacturing 

Rhino’s Vacuum Assisted Resin Transfer Molding (VARTM) or Liquid Resin Infusion technology is a closed composite manufacturing process in which dry fibers are laid on the tool and vacuum sealed while Rhino 1310T liquid resin and hardener. The resin is pulled into the mould by negative pressure to impregnate the fibers already laid out in the mould. This liquid resin technology provides for lower cost and lower cure temperatures.

Since the liquid resin techniques do not require curing cycles over 60°C, the tooling is much easier to construct. Liquid resin infusion forms a uniform composite of nearly ideal 65% fiberglass to 35% resin by weight.

1310T for Composites

A 100% solids, non-draining epoxy system for epoxy composites. Rhino 1310T is a single resin system with multiple choices of either 2:1 or 4:1 (by volume) curing agent hardeners for variety of fiber reinforced applications. A wide variety of Rhino hardeners are available to use with Rhino 1310T Resin.

 

1310T Composite Features

• Cures fast with mild (120°F) heat
• Trenchless repair of pipes from 2" to 102" in diameter
• Lines pipes and drain lines with a 90-degree bend
• Immediately rehabilitates the underground pipe system by adding internal structural reinforcement
• Multiple 2:1 or 4:1 hardener curing agents (for variable temperature range production)
• Resin is tinted blue, hardeners are transparent yellow (ensuring properly-mixed uniform green color)

1310T Composite Benefits

• Increased flexibility and reduced process time
• Reduces installation time (eliminating heavy equipment)
• Fabrication of large scale composite structures
• Better control of glass to resin content
• Smaller crew for lamination steps
• Consistent production
• Less odor during curing
• Uses simple tooling
