Cure 55—Carbon Fibre Bridgedeck Infusion

Here at Cure Marine, we’re very proud of the wide range of world-class skills and capabilities that we have within our team. In this video, we show the process of infusing the main bridgedeck component of Cure 55 hull #2.

Our infusion process can be broken down into these steps:

  • A single piece of 24 metre wide custom-made plastic sheeting is fixed over the bridgedeck mould.
  • 350 metres of infusion hosing is attached, every piece having a unique code carefully labelled to identify the area of the mould it serves.
  • Epoxy resin is mixed to a careful and strict timing schedule.
  • The infusion station buckets are filled with mixed resin and kept topped up throughout the infusion process.
  • The clamps are removed from the infusion hoses in a specific order to release the resin, which is pulled through the mould via suction.
  • Over a period of a few hours, the resin infuses through the hoses and into the mould, starting from the bridgedeck centreline and flowing outwards.
  • The longeron of the Cure 55 is incorporated into the main bridgedeck, creating a single structural piece. An engineering feat in catamaran manufacturing.
  • The bagging and hosing is all removed for quality control and inspection in preparation for assembly of all structural elements.
