VIP—Vacuum Infusion

 

The vacuum infusion process is a cost effective method of manufacturing high quality and high strength composite parts that are required in relatively low quantities, say less than a few hundred identical pieces per mould per year, or physically large parts which are difficult, or prohibitively expensive to make by any other method.

 

Two Main Benefits of the infusion process´╝Ü

 

The process is carried out within a “closed” system Hence there is minimal exposure of the uncured resin to the atmosphere.  The potential for harm to worker health and to the environment from volatile resin components is consequently reduced.

 

Infusion is a particularly practical and cost effective solution for the construction of large, high strength/light weight one-piece parts, such as boat hulls, wind turbine blades, bridge beams and building cladding panels.
