Cure monitoring techniques are used to improve the efficiency of processing, for quality assurance and to study the curing process. Such cure studies can prevent wastage due to failure of resin to react, use of incorrect proportions of resin components, poor mixing of resin, or incorrect processing conditions. This review focuses on in-line cure monitoring as a key way of optimising production. Composite manufacturing methods vary from labour intensive techniques such as hand lay-up to capital intensive techniques such as autoclaving. The basic curing process is the same in each case:
