JEC Group is launching for the first time an exclusive version in English of “Resin Infusion Processing in Composites” by Jorge Nasseh, sponsored by Owens Corning. This new publication, Resin Infusion Technology covers practical issues associated with Resin infusion processing in Composites.
The book gives details about material selection for vacuum-assisted composites construction, the physics and history of the process, computer simulation and infusion strategies, permeability testing and calculation. The first edition of this volume, already available in Brazilian / Portuguese for the South-American market, is preceded by one preface written by Owens Corning Composites Business President, Marcio Sandri (Toledo, Ohio, U.S.).
This book — Jorge’s fifth in the field — is a “pièce de résistance”, which took time and dedication to write, and the result is a detailed and beneficial treatise on infusion as a process. It comprises the manufacture of wind turbine blades, high-performance boats, aerospace parts, and many other parts and projects typically characterized by significant dimensions and critical responsibilities in use…This book achieves its goal in nearly 400 pages of crucial knowledge for the mastery and good use of this process, knowledge that is of increasing importance for the global composites industry…. To you, the reader, I ask you to take advantage of the accumulation of knowledge and experience now placed in this book, and add what you learn here, which will be a great deal, to the continuing success of the beautiful and seemingly endless world of composite materials”, stated Marcio Sandri, President of the Composites Business of Owens Corning.
In this book, composite students, engineers, and scientists will find practical and technical information about the Resin Infusion Process to build extremely quality parts in advanced composite materials.
