VACUUM FURNACE WITH PRESSING CAPACITY
Keywords:composite materials, vacuum furnace, heat press, fiber-reinforced polymer, prc, frp
Following article considers design for vacuum furnace with pressing capacity to create a plastic and polymer composite material and achieve proper physical and mechanical properties for them. Major advantage of machine is to make possible use proper compounds in vacuum chamber and to apply pressing force and temperature at the same time. A composite material is a material which is produced from two or more constituent materials. These constituent materials have notably dissimilar chemical or physical properties and are merged to create a material with properties unlike the individual elements. Within the finished structure, the individual elements remain separate and distinct, distinguishing composites from mixtures and solid solutions. Composite materials are generally used for buildings, bridges, and structures such as boat hulls, swimming pool panels, racing car bodies, shower stalls, bathtubs, storage tanks, imitation granite, and cultured marble sinks and countertops. Typical engineered composite materials include: reinforced concrete and masonry, composite wood – plywood, reinforced plastics - fiber-reinforced polymer or fiberglass, ceramic matrix composites, metal matrix composites and other advanced composite materials.
