HISTORY
developed by a US navy contract for the development of 28-ft long
personal boat in 1946
Harold John Pollard and John Rees in between 1952 – 1956
plant for fibers and asbestos
fully developed for general aerospace applications in the 1980s
Types :- LCM,RIM,SRIM,RRIM,RTM

Advantages
Design Flexibility
Faster Production
Labor Savings
Dimensional Tolerances
Surface Finish
Lower Material Wastage
Very large and complex shapes can be made efficiently
Disadvantages
Greater Tooling Design and Construction Skills Required
Higher Tool Cost
Reinforcement loading may be difficult with complex parts
Mold design is complex
Properties of the material which affect by RTM process
Density
Strength
Notched and Unnotched lzod Impact Strength increases
Applications
Wing Panel
Truck pannel
boat hulls
wind turbine blades
aircraft radar.
helmet, bathroom fixtures, car body etc
Aerospace parts
