Title
(EN) MOLD PLATEN WITH WOVEN SURFACE TEXTURE AND THERMOSET ARTICLE MADE THEREFROM
(FR) PLATINE DE MOULE AYANT UNE TEXTURE DE SURFACE TISSEE ET ARTICLE THERMODURCISSABLE REALISE A PARTIR DE CELLE-CI
Abstract
(EN)
A method for imparting textures of grained or woven patterns to the surfaces of thermoset articles during the formation of the article includes a platen with a texture being introduced into a mold. A thermoset material is charged into the mold. Pressure and heat are applied to bring the thermoset material into contact with the platen to impart the texture to a surface of the thermoset material. The thermoset material is allowed to cure in the mold. The thermoset article is removed from the mold with the texture. The textured article is structurally improved relative to a like article formed with a smooth or other platen texture. A system for producing the article by way of the method is also provided.
