The right tools to do the job
Tric Composites is able to do the complete job giving you, the customer, peace of mind. We have extensive experience in:
All the usual processes found in typical fibreglass factories.
In addition, we offer the following niche processes and materials:
The autoclave (see photo above and to side) is used for prepreg
to control a high pressure, high temperature, cure profile.
Our machine is 2m in diameter and 8m long. Max working
pressure is 0.6 Megapascals (6 bar) with a design capacity of 0.8Mpa.
Maximum working temperature is 160 Deg Celscius (design 180C).
We have made high modulus carbon beams (see in foreground of
side photo) for the Rapido 60 with a structural rating of over
In June 2019, Triac Composites took delivery of a Kuka 6 axis milling robot.
The robot has a working area of 22.5m x 3.7m and comes with a 22.5m linear track.
RTM (Resin Transfer Moulding)
Added to our capabilities in 2017, RTM injects a measured dose of resin into a closed mould using pressure.
The process is repeatable and faster than other processes.
The key benefit, however, is that we can get a good quality surface on both sides of the part.
Infusion uses a vacuum to suck resin into the part whilst compressing all the plies tightly together.
This process is used for large foam-sandwich core parts such as boat hulls.
The process ensures there are no air voids and no inter laminar bonds - and sufficient time for staff to position the cloth and reinforcements before the vacuuming commences.
Triac Composites has a large air conditioned, self contained Clean room from which we can prepare our more high end work, especially prepreg work prior to it being placed in the autoclave to be cured.
Triac Composites has its own dust-free spray booth which allows us to finish high-end pieces including interiors and furniture for yachts including the full range of Rapido Trimarans.
