Compression molding is a process by which you place material into a mold cavity and apply pressure and heat to form shaped materials. It is a similar process to making waffles. Compression molding allows for the provision of large parts, there is extremely low to zero residual stress left in stock shape, and tooling costs are relatively low making it an attractive process.

WHY COMPOSITE MATERIALS?
The two components of a composite include a reinforcement (often a high-performance fiber such as carbon or glass) and a matrix (such as epoxy polymer). The matrix binds the reinforcement together to merge the benefits of both original components.
