Solvay Launches VAC-PERF A2400

12 March 2019

Solvay announces the launch of VAC-PERF A2400, its next-generation high performance release film for wind energy applications.

VAC-PERF A2400’s compatibility with a wide range of resin systems from polyesters to next-gen epoxies, combined with high release properties makes it a true alternative to legacy release films which have now reached their performance limits.

VAC-PERF A2400 offers clear benefits to users including:

  • Maximised release properties - reduces tool cleaning operations.
  • Simplified peeling off process - saves time and cost.
  • Clean laminate - good surface finish without costly rework.
  • Usage flexibility - can be used for resin infusion and prepreg cures.  
  • Simplified inventory - one peel ply for a range of resins and applications.  
  • Available in width of up to 2 meters - lowers kitting costs with a 20% reduced assembly time capability.  
  • Available with various perforation types incl. P3, P16, P31.

VAC-PERF A2400 will now be used as part of Solvay’s VAC-PLY INFUPLY (combination product with infusion mesh/breather and release film), improving efficiencies further by enabling part manufacturers to focus on value added operations and industrialise their production.
