Training Courses


Composite materials are growing unprecedented in modern industry. Currently, there are various industrial sectors in which composite materials are essential: (agricultural, aerospace, architecture, automotive, motorcycles, civil construction, sports, renewable energy, railways, gas pipelines, oil pipelines, medicine, nautical and a long etc. ). This course proposes to offer an introduction to composite materials and their applications in industrial sectors, the advantages and disadvantages of these materials, the knowledge of all the parties involved in composite materials (reinforcements, resins, fillers and additives), the processes basics of molding (manual lamination) and in particular we will stop at the processes of high modulus carbon fiber composite materials, polyester resin, vinylester resins and epoxy resins. We will also cover vacuum compaction, infusion molding, Light RTM resin transfer molding and other manufacturing processes for carbon fiber parts and molds for high-demand applications. We will study the theory of design and construction of models and dies for the serial production of high-performance components.


The courses are aimed at all kinds of people who want to start in this world as exciting as composite materials and at companies from any sector in which composites may be involved or need to incorporate these materials into their production.


In the course you will learn about the different materials, from the most basic (release agents, manual lamination, etc.), to the most advanced (such as vacuum compaction, infusions, light RTM, etc.). You will also learn about the different mold manufacturing processes, both in polyester and epoxy, and, of course, the different ways of manufacturing the final parts in different types of reinforcement fabrics, depending on the specifications required for each type of part.


The course is intensive and its duration is 5 days.

The hours are from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. with a mid-morning stop for an aperitif and from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.


-The main mechanical, physical and chemical properties of polyester, vinyl ester and epoxy resins will be studied.

-We will focus on accelerators, catalysts, inhibitors, pigments, thixotropic agents and we will see the importance of the glass transition temperature (GT).

-Low styrene emission resins, DCPD.

-We will focus on the different types of release agents, such as polyvinyl alcohol, waxes and semi-permanent release agents.

-We will see the different types of reinforcement fabrics, from the most common, such as fiberglass in its different types of manufacturing, to other types of more resistant fabrics such as carbon, aramid (better known as Kevlar®) or fabrics inblack.

-We will also see the advantages that we will have in making our laminate with the different types of cores that exist and we will see the lightness and rigidity of these pieces using the least possible weight. These cores can be: balsa wood, cork, PVC foam, PET foam, etc.

-We will make and treat a master model, made with polyurethane foam or wood, which are easy to carve and we will cover it with different materials to leave them in conditions to be able to get our mold with an optimal finish.
-We will manufacture different types of moulds, both with epoxy resins and with polyester resins where we will use Low profile resins (which are resins with low or no contraction and exothermic peak) and we will see how important it is to know the TG of the queens to put them in our molds.

-We will make pieces by hand lamination and we will see all the steps from the gel coat to the final finish, presenting the different types of care that we have to have in each step, so that our piece comes out with the desired quality.

-We will also stop, in making pieces by vacuum compaction with carbon fabrics and later we will see the final finish and we will see the different materials to leave a spectacular finish.

-Another of the work processes that we are going to do is the vacuum infusion of different pieces, checking how the resin behaves from the moment it enters and wetting the fabrics until it finishes off the piece, we will also see how the different problems that arise are solved. can be created in the process.


Generally, the courses are given on the client’s premises (since the main users are usually companies), but if a minimum number of attendees is achieved, an appropriate location will be set up to carry it out. Each course will be studied depending on the needs of the client and they will have the offers à la carte.

There are special discounts for groups! Check our offers.


It is important to note that the courses will be taught solely and exclusively in Spanish, both their theoretical and practical classes.

To carry out these courses we will need a minimum number of assistants because the materials used in the practical classes are the same that would be used to create a real piece and therefore carry very high costs. This implies that on some occasions there will be a waiting time from the date of registration of the course until the course is completed until the minimum places are covered. In the case of groups or companies it would be totally different since the minimum registration would probably be reached from the beginning.
