I imagined that by covering a Dome, a House Roof, a Plane, a Boat or even a Space Ship with Carbon Fiber sheets and then being able to simply spray on a penetrating resin that would harden, would create a sealed barrier to the elements that was strong and durable while being very light weight.
Well, just this May 2012 we can see the beginnings of just such technology being used to mass produce auto bodies.
Resin spray transmission technology gains traction in auto sector
Automakers are very interested in carbon fiber composite processing technologies that boast significantly lower processing costs. One such process promising such potential is Resin Spray Transmission (RST) from Quickstep Technologies (North Coogee, Australia).
