Vacuum Infusion Processing

Starting Resin Infusion

Before vacuum infusion processing (VIP or resin infusion), there was vacuum bagging. With vacuum bagging, a laminate is first wet out through an open mold type process, then covered in plastic and sealed. A vacuum is then pulled, which helps consolidate the laminate and pull out air and excess resin. From vacuum bagging came vacuum Read More…
