About

Manufacturing in 'reinforced plastics' is undergoing a steady and irreversible change away from traditional but unsustainable ‘open-moulding’ methods, towards precise, cleaner and more efficient 'Closed Mould' processes.

Composite Integration Ltd is committed to providing market-leading, innovative, and well engineered solutions to the composites industry, specialising in Resin Transfer Moulding and Resin Infusion

A dedicated, approachable, dynamic team with unrivalled experience

Our Background

Manufacturers attempting ‘closed mould’ processing often require a high level of technical assistance to help them through the initial learning curve.

Composite Integration is able to provide practical assistance throughout the closed-mould process from RTM to Resin-Infusion, covering areas such as product design optimisation, materials selection, tooling design, and manufacture (composite and metal), injection and infusion equipment, accessories, installation, monitoring, process control and training.

Our team is able to offer an unparalleled range of skills and experience and is dedicated to helping customers throughout the entire process.

The Ciject™ range of injection equipment is widely acknowledged as being the most sophisticated available, and combines award winning design with the highest quality engineering. The range includes a highly innovative range of equipment for delivering mixed resin into infusion processes.
This development is based around the use of in-mould sensors (IMPS) to provide accurate control feed-back and the technique is now used to manufacture some of the largest composite structures in existence.

We recognise the need for high quality and practical training, and the company is able to provide both on-site and in house training to suit the individual client. Composite Integration Ltd is continuing to expand with support from several worldwide partners.
Staff training is a key strategy to ensure all personnel are able to respond to both customer’s needs and continuing developments in the RTM process.

The scope of work includes projects in the Automotive, Marine, Wind and Tidal energy, Aerospace, ‘Off-Highway’, Sports, Architectural, Rail and Defence industries. Projects have varied from tool manufacture through to complete automated production moulding cells.

Here’s a general presentation showing our main areas of focus with examples of practical applications and products.

Our Background

Silicone Composites Ltd is a specialist company with many years’ experience in the use of silicone in the composites, film and special effects industries. We work in partnership with Composite Integration Ltd; the market leader in RTM and infusion technology.
Combining this practical knowledge of silicone processing with Composite Integration’s expertise in designing and building world-class processing equipment has enabled us to offer a superb range of silicone spray equipment backed up by an unparalleled depth of composite processing knowledge.

Resin Infusion with reuseable silicone bags

Silicone can often be used to replace the disposable bag with a reusable and pre-shaped bag which includes an integral sealing system, thus providing very significant savings in application time and materials.

Resin Inlet and venting strategies can be highly adaptable and resin flow can be influenced and accelerated by the use of disposable ‘flow media’ positioned between the vacuum membrane and the laminate. Resin infusion is particularly relevant when making large structures as tooling costs are relatively low when compared to RTM processes.

Unlike RTM, the ‘B’ surface finish of the resulting laminate is not controlled cosmetically but excellent laminate properties can be achieved. Volatile emissions can also be dramatically reduced making resin infusion an excellent alternative to large-scale open moulding.
