Overview

Written for those who want to enhance the quality and performance of their composite projects, Composites Fabrication Handbook #2 focuses on what it takes to truly optimize a composite lamination for high-performance use. Basic mold-making is covered in this book to help fabricators produce effective mold systems from a variety of molding materials. Several advanced molding techniques are demonstrated in-depth so the reader will be able to create their own parts using compression molding, vacuum-bagging, trapped-rubber insert molding, inflatable bladder molding, or resin transfer molding techniques. In the spirit of Composites Fabrication Handbook #1, this book presents each subject in a hands-on, practical way and facilitates a natural progression of skills to enable both beginners and advanced fabricators alike to build their composite projects with confidence.

Creating useful composite parts requires a good design, a topic that is discussed at length in this book. The methods illustrated here lend themselves to both motorcycle and automotive builders and customizers. The construction of these parts is documented in step-by-step fashion with an abundance of photographs - no step is left out.

The ideal author for a composite materials book, John Wanberg - is an Assistant Professor of Industrial Design at Metropolitan State College of Denver where he teaches design materials and studio classes. He has worked professionally in the design and manufacture of varied composite products ranging from wearable medical robotic devices to aftermarket automotive parts and alternatively powered vehicles.
