Films Can Cut Bagging Time In Half
Draw vacuum bag molding films are dramatically different and
effective. Their revolutionary texture is specifically engineered
to provide rapid, controlled evacuation of bags with little or no
air entrapment. It also permits quick, accurate film positioning.
The pattern geometry allows only minimal surface contact with the
laminate until vacuum is applied, so technicians spend more time
producing and less time fighting film. Imagine what a 50% reduction
in bagging time can do for productivity!
The more complicated
the design, the more you need the revolutionary technology of Quick
Draw films. Our films' unique venting action allows uniform
evacuation of the bag, so there's less need for intermediate layers
such as breathers. That means the cost for time and materials is
reduced for each lay up.
films' special design also improves elongation and drapability,
so bridging is less pronounced and irregular contours can be bagged
without specially fabricated ears or gussets. These new films have
higher dimensional stability at autoclave temperatures. Film shrinkage
is reduced, so there's less pull back from the sealant tape and
fewer bag failures in the autoclave.

VARTM films with the specially engineered Micro Channel surface
move air quickly and completely from the vacuum bag, then efficiently
and uniformly distribute vacuum induced resin flow throughout.
just for big projects anymore; small jobs are as simple as pouring
resin into the tool, bagging, and evacuating. With Quick Draw
Film there's less hands-on application; the work is easier and there's
little additional training required because the materials and tooling
used in this process are very similar to those used in conventional
VARTM is perfect
for use with a wide variety of forms and conventional resin systems
including polyesters, vinylesters, and epoxies. Larger, more complicated
projects become possible within a manufacturer's present system.
Best of all, when using UV cured resins (like those from Sunrez)
in conjunction with Quick Draw VARTM film open cure time can
be extended indefinitely. Very large parts can be created in a single
process with near-zero VOC emissions.
