RTM-S: a new manufacturing
concept for composites
The low surface quality and high costs of painting preparation are two issues that plague composite-based products. This is not exclusive to RTM, extending to almost all composite processes. The market, in turn, suffers from these disadvantages.

RENAN HOLZMANN ENGINEERING MANAGER MVC

gainst this background, the technical staff at MVC Solutions in Plastics (Soluções em Plásticos), a Brazilian company that specializes in engineering plastics processing, decided to look for a practical solution to the problem. It took six years of development and studies to reach the final concept, a process that combines the characteristics of thermoplastics with those of thermosets.

A

means of a thermoplastic skin bonded to the composite material and shaped by the RTM Light process. This thermoplastic skin makes painting preparation much easier, significantly reducing the costs of this operation. The process also promotes a “class A” surface finish and may even totally eliminate the need for painting. To this end, the conventional ABS skin can be replaced by a multilayer thermoplastic system prepared for this purpose such as, for example, ABS+ASA+PMMA (3 layers), offering

RTM-S, as the process was named, ensures excellent surface quality by

More information

MVC Soluções em Plásticos belongs to the Artecola and Marcopolo groups. Acting in the plastic processing sector since 1989, MVC employs over 750 professionals in four factories in Brazil: in São José dos Pinhais, State of Paraná; in Catalão, State of Goiás; in Sete Lagoas, State of Minas Gerais; and in Caxias do Sul, State of Rio Grande do Sul. A fifth plant is being implemented in Bahia state (MVC Bahia), to attend the eolic energy market, with infusion and RTM processes. In 2009, it acquired Poloplast Painéis, a business unit that manufactures high-performance panels and the "Wall System" building system. In line with the strategies of the Artecola Group, a reference in adhesive specialties, engineering plastics and PPEs, MVC has technological innovation as one of its key differentials. As a result, it supplies large companies in the domestic and international markets with thermoplastic and thermoset components manufactured by extrusion, vacuum forming, RTM and continuous lamination, ensuring agility, flexibility and low investment for the development of products and solutions.
