1 day

Course Content:

  • Understanding of generic personal Health and Safety precautions when working with and around composites materials.
  • Knowledge of sources of damage to composites materials and products and awareness of necessary precautions.
  • Knowledge of environmental conditions required for the manufacture of composites materials.
  • Strength and stiffness - how composites products usually have both.
  • How resin plus reinforcement in a composite material provides better performance than either independently.
  • Ways of making composite material products.
  • How the manufacturing process creates the material properties which are built into the design.
  • How raw materials and finished products can be more expensive in line with their increased performance.
  • How to avoid Health and Safety problems and deal with the effects.
