Resin Impregnation

Resin Infusion

Resin infusion is a potentially much lower cost manufacturing method than the current prepreg and autoclave solution, with applications from large, high performance structures such as aeroplane wings and wind turbine blades to bridge decks.

High Temperature Resin Transfer Moulding

Moulding composites using high temperature resins and functional additives means that finished components have greater mechanical performance in harsh environments.  The technology stirs, de-gasses, heats and injects a wide variety of 'difficult to process' resin systems into a variable geometry Resin Transfer Moulding (RTM) tool with instrumentation of all key process parameters.

Large Scale Resin Infusion

Our Large Scale Resin Infusion (LSRI) equipment is designed to carry out controlled resin infusion of very large composite structures.  Dependent on resin type and configuration, we can process volumes of up to 2,000kg of resin.

Applications include:

  • large aerospace structures
  • wind turbine blades
  • marine structures such as ship hulls
  • civil engineering structures such as bridges
  • oil and gas structures

COVID-19 update

Following the Prime Minister’s Briefing on Monday 23 March where he gave clear guidance for the nation to stay at home, and in line with University of Bristol action to close down all of its buildings, the NCC has taken the decision to close both the NCC HQ and NCC Filton centres until further notice, effective from 24 March 2020. 

The vast majority of NCC staff have already been working from home, successfully holding digital meetings with our members, customers and other partners and will continue to do so. You can still get in touch with us through your usual contacts via email and phone, or please email We are in touch with our customers to discuss arrangements for our current projects.

Thank you for your understanding and patience. We will continue to update our website and social media channels to keep you informed.
