Frimo to continue cooperation with ESC

The companies have signed an agreement, which will serve as the basis for continuing the intensive collaboration on RTM (Resin Transfer Moulding) process optimisation, which the two companies began at the end of 2012. L.E.S.L.I.E. (Low Energy, Speed and Less Input of Material and Equipment) is the name of the joint project, that Frimo and ESC are using to demonstrate new ways of effectively manufacturing even large-volume lightweight components. ESC is a leading manufacturer of structure-reinforcing foam cores. With the new product line C+, the users of carbon fibre can reduce the material input for fibre and resin by up to 50 %. The acoustic, thermal and electrical insulation values and the vibration behaviour are improved significantly. As a technology specialist, Frimo offers the full range of tooling and equipment for polyurethane processing, and also has a long list of reference customers who use its RTM (Resin Transfer Moulding) processes. Meanwhile several PURe Mix mixing and metering machines designed for the material-specific processing of polyurethane-based matrix materials such as Vitrox have been developed and built - equipment which is now also operating at customers' facilities.
