Acquisition of Equipment for Composite Manufacturing Laboratory

An interdisciplinary team of faculty was formed to upgrade the Composite Manufacturing and Testing Facilities at Missouri S&T. The Metering Unit is useful to manufacture composite pultruded parts using two part polyurethane resin system. Prior to the equipment acquisition, the pultrusion manufacturing facility was restricted to epoxy, polyester and vinyl ester resin systems. The Metering Unit enables the manufacture of composite parts using polyurethane resin system. Composite test fixtures are required to conduct specialized tests like Compression after Impact, Open Hole Compressions and Interlaminar Shear.
