Benefits of RTC panels are:
- Fully finished parts in one shot
- Surface materials (eg vinyl coated felt, artificial leather, needled polyester felt) integrated in the final panel during manufacturing process
- Easy processability
- Economical short series production
- Simple and economical tools (eg wooden molds)
- Fast cycle time
- Weight reduction
- Good vibration damping
- Good sound and heat insulation
- Recyclable - reduce waste to landfill
- Expandable under heat=>"sandwich effect for stiffness"
- Freedom of design
- Potential to use natural, carbon and basalt fibers instead of glass fibres
