Super Wide Vacuum Bag and Resin Infusion Connections and Feeders

28 May 2006

Airtech has made new additions to their wide range of vacuum bagging products for resin infusion and low temperature composite processing applications.

Big Blue L100 Vacuum Bag is a multi-layer film available up to 12m wide and capable of processing temperatures up to 125ºC. Airtech say that its multi-layer construction provides enhanced vacuum security and toughness for large vacuum bags, and that its wide format, temperature performance, toughness and suitability for direct resin contact makes it a perfect choice for resin infusion in marine and wind energy applications.

More new introductions from Airtech for resin infusion processing include the RIC Resin infusion connector, VacTrak and ResinTrak products. The RIC Resin Infusion Connector is an inexpensive and reusable through bag connector for resin feed and vacuum manifold connections. The one piece connector provides simple, fast and reliable push fit connection for resin feeder and vacuum tubing in ½”, 5/8” and ¾” diameters.

VacTrak and ResinTrak are knitted tapes for resin feeds and vacuum manifold construction. ResinTrak has a high permeability knitted polyester construction and enables laminate surface resin feed with negligible mark-off and easily removal when placed on top of peel ply or perforated release films. VacTrak is a self adhesive version ideal for speedy construction of vacuum manifolds.
