Motorbike Carbon Fibre Air Filter

The mould for Chris' motorbike air filter was created using the EG160 Gel coat backed up with 300g powder bound CSM and the EL160 high temp laminating resin.

It is a three part split mould to enable the part to be made in one piece without the part being mechanically locked into the mould. The mould was then post cured in the oven to make it suitable for use with pre-pregs.

Once post cured, the mould was release coated with the CR1 EasyLease prior to having the XC110 pre-preg laid into it. The laid up pre-preg was covered in release film and the mould was then vacuum bagged and cured in the OV301 Oven as per the standard cure cycle. Once cured, the bagging materials were removed and the mould split to allow demoulding of the part. The finished airbox was then trimmed on the edges and lacquered with a UV stable lacquer for protection and gloss finish. The top piece and side covers were made in the same way but each one only needed a single piece mould.
