Abstract
Although resin injection is the procedure most often specified for repairing delaminations, field experience as well as numerous experimental investigations have shown it to be unreliable and in many cases ineffective. This paper identifies some of the reasons for this and then goes on to describe the successful development of an epoxy resin specially formulated for delamination repair. The ability of this resin to fully restore the out of-plane properties of delaminated carbon/epoxy laminates is demonstrated and some of the more practical aspects of repairing delaminations both on and off aircraft are discussed.
