Vacuum Bagging Supplies
Reusable vacuum bags could reduce your labour costs by up to 80%. Yeah, that’s right. This new, innovative type of bag can be used to quickly produce all types of parts.
Vacuum bagging is a method for creating mechanical pressure on a laminate during its cure cycle. It removes trapped air between layers. It also reduces humidity, and stops shifting of fibre orientation. This means you can maximise the physical properties of the composite materials, such as carbon, epoxy and aramid.
Vacuum bagging allows for a consistently distributed compression. No wrinkles, bubbles or annoying little inconsistencies in the build-up of layers. And what better way to organise your vacuum bagging supplies and materials than through Rowe Trading. Our silicone vacuum bags are strong, reusable, and cut down your costs.
Choose Smooth-On products over traditional vacuum bagging for faster fabrication, to eliminate things like peel-ply, separating film/messy tape, and for better performance. Say goodbye to gross odour and harsh, nasty resins. It’s self-releasing, so no agents are needed. Our silicones are also resistant to heat – of up to 260°C. Plus, they’re eco-friendly, so you know you’re doing well for our planet by reducing landfill.
You can use your new vacuum bag up to 50 times with epoxy and 100 times when using pre-preg thermoplastic.
