  • Publication number: 20170291330
    Abstract: A method for producing a composite part. The method includes the following steps: stacking a first mat, a spacer and a second mat in a heatable mold; at least one of the mats including a continuous web of fibers impregnated with a thermosetting resin; and compressing and heating of the stack by the heatable mold, in order to polymerize the thermosetting resin. The stacking step includes the deposition, in a heatable mold, of a first and a second filtration layer, in contact respectively with the first and second mats, on the opposite side from the spacer. The filtration layers are porous to steam and relatively less porous to the thermosetting resin. During the compression and heating step steam is evacuated from the mold.
