|Summary||Resin-Transfer Molding (RTM) is a useful process to fill a specific need for improving the productivity of making composite parts, and has been used in many industrial fields, because it is of some advantages. Typical parts would include machine cabinetry, solar collectors, snowmobiles, bathtubs, shower enclosures, airplane wing ribs, hatch covers, car bodies, bus shelters and yacht. The key points of RTM technology can be summarized as the following three aspects: reinforcement for RTM, resin matrix for RTM, and mold design for RTM. In the present research, using bamboo woven preform as reinforcement, a polyester system modified as matrix, designing a suitable mold for RTM, a yacht preparation was carried out and a yacht prepared from bamboo woven preform reinforced polyester via RTM was obtained.
||Keywords|| bamboo reinforcement, bamboo woven preform, polyester, mold design, RTM, yacht.
