Aerovac Launch STRETCHVAC3000

11 July 2011

Richmond Aerovac has launched STRETCHVAC3000, its latest vacuum bagging film.

According to Aerovac, STRETCHVAC3000 is ideally suited to high temperature extended autoclave cures and is compatible with the majority of commonly used aerospace grade resin systems, including BMIs. They say Boeing recently qualified and switched to STRETCHVAC3000 due to its superior adhesion to sealant tape, retention of mechanical properties during lengthy cure cycles (10+ hours) and improved quality performance in comparison to other aerospace approved vacuum bagging films.
