resin content monitoring in prepregs

Hi all,

We develop industrial low energy X-ray method and apparatus for monitoring of resin content in prepregs during production. Can anybody give us his thoughts about this method or show us a link where a X-ray method is used at presence in prepregs manufacturing?

Any thoughts will be greatly appreciated

Sincerelly,
Dr. Nikitin

You should take a careful look at the attenuation coefficients of the materials involved. X-ray may not be the best method for distinguishing graphite from the resin. Looking for actual voids is a different matter. Air-transmission ultrasound would be worth consideration.
