The overall technical objective of the Phase 1 effort was to extend and advance the state the-art in high temperature composite fabrication techniques by developing a High Tempera Vacuum Assisted Resin Transfer Molding VARTM process for polyimide resins. This was accomplished by drawing on MP Technologies past small-scale fabrication successes, do selecting the best practicesmethods, and ultimately demonstrating equivalent properties Resin Transfer Molded Polymer Matrix Composites PMCs. Specific objectives included 1 develop optimized process parameters for VARTM with scalability in mind, 2 down select the best candidate resins and determine equivalency to RTM panels, and 3 determine application for Phase 2 sub-component demonstrations.
