Certificate course on Composite manufacturing with emphasis on Pultrusion :


Pultrusion is a continuous process for manufacturing of Composite materials with constant cross-section. Reinforced fibers are pulled through a resin, possibly followed by a separate pre-forming system, and into a heated die, where the resin undergoes polymerization. Many resin types may be used in pultrusion including Polyester, Phenolics, Polyurethane, Vinylester and Epoxy


Pre-requisite : ITI /Diploma - Mechanical/Textile/Plastic/Civil


Duration : 2 Months
