Vacuum Infusion

Vacuum infusion is a fabrication technique that uses vacuum pressure to drive resin into a laminate. Dry materials are laid into the mold and the vacuum pressure is applied before resin is introduced. Once a complete vacuum is achieved, resin is forced into the laminate via vacuum tubing. The vacuum infusion process offers a better fiber-to-resin ratio than hand lay-up or vacuum bagging.

EnkaFusion Nylon Flow Media
Fastest Resin Infusions

EnkaFusion® Nylon Flow Media is designed to facilitate resin infusion and provides the fastest flow rates of all flow media available at FibreGlast.com. Randomly oriented nylon filaments create a flat, open structure that expedites resin flow, permits a complete wet-out, and keeps resin retention to a minimum. Use it at the surface, or as a separation layer between layers of reinforcement within your composite.

  • Compatible with epoxy, polyester, and vinyl ester resins
  • Nylon permits use with high temperature range
  • Flexible; easy to handle, cut, and install

EnkaFusion is 39" wide.

 
Green HDPE Infusion Flow Media
Quick Controlled Channels

Green HDPE Infusion Flow Media is designed to facilitate resin flow that is quick, controlled, and predictable for resin infusion projects up to 90 square feet. It can be used for larger projects if multiple ports and flow channels are installed. Use it at the surface, or as a separation layer between layers of reinforcement within your composite.

  • Compatible with epoxy, polyester, and vinyl ester resins
  • Use with temperatures up to 200°F
  • Conformable and easy to handle for positioning within vacuum bag; doesn't roll up or fray when cut

Green HDPE mesh fabric is 42" wide.

 
Red LDPE Infusion Flow Media
Controlled Resin Channels

Red LDPE Infusion Flow Media is designed to facilitate a controlled, predictable flow of resin for smaller resin infusion projects up to 50 square feet. It can be used for larger projects if multiple resin ports are installed on a single part. Use it at the surface, or as a separation layer between layers of reinforcement within your composite.

  • Compatible with epoxy, polyester, and vinyl ester resins
  • Use with temperatures up to 160°F
  • Conformable and easy to handle for positioning within vacuum bag; doesn't roll up or fray when cut

Red LDPE mesh fabric is 60" wide.

 
DIVINYMAT
Structural Flow Media

Divinymat has been engineered specifically for the resin infusion process and serves as both a sandwich core and a flow media.

Divinymat is a 3.8-pound DIAB Divinycell H foam. As a foam sandwich core, it provides the highest strength-for-density in its application range, which includes marine and land transportation, wind energy, civil engineering/ infrastructure, and general industrial markets. It also delivers solid compressive and shear strength in both ambient and elevated temperatures.

Cross-scoring, as well as grooves and perforations, at the surface of the foam create controlled flow channels for resin during the infusion process. It offers the highest structural properties of any available flow media.

  • Bonded to a light scrim cloth at its back, allowing it to conform to most simple curves and shapes
  • Compatible with epoxy, polyester, and vinyl ester resins
  • Features chemical resistance, low water absorption, and good thermal/acoustic insulation
  • Store out of direct sunlight

Divinymat is sold by the sheet and is ⅛" thick.

 
Spiral Tubing
Extend Vacuum/Infusion Lines In Bag 

Spiral Tubing is a resin infusion standard and is ideally suited for in-bag vacuum line extenders or resin feed lines.

  • Inner diameter (ID) is ½"; outer diameter (OD) is ¾"
  • Temperature range: -76°F to 122°F
  • Compatible with range of fittings offered at FibreGlast.com

To ensure resin flow is not impeded, we recommend wrapping tubing in nylon or polyester peel ply.

 
EnkaFusion Filter Jacket
Create Fast Resin Channels

Increase the productivity of your resin infusion process with EnkaFusion® Filter Jacket. This unique flow media permits a wider path for resin dispersion over the entire feeder surface, resulting in more even resin dispersion.

  • Features three-dimensional "V" shaped nylon mat core encased in a thermally bonded, nonwoven polyester sock
  • Proven consistency for high quality finished parts time after time
  • Fits easily into production flow; install with plastic T Fittings (#906)

 
Lantor Soric® XF
Conformable Flow Media

Lantor Soric® is the most conformable of our flow media for resin infusion. This product features unique hexagonal flow channels across a carrier sheet that create a steady, even resin front. Lantor Soric quickly builds thickness with up to 35% less resin retention than all-glass laminates.

  • Compatible with epoxy, polyester, and vinyl ester resins
  • Can also be used as core material and/or a print blocker
  • Constructed of nonwoven polyester
  • Available in two thicknesses (2 mm and 3 mm), both 50" wide

 
Vacuum Infusion Trial Kit
All You Need to Kick-Start Resin Infusion


Once you have experience vacuum bagging and molding at room temps, it's natural to move on to vacuum infusion. This kit is designed to familiarize you with the process, and help you make informed decisions about choosing flow media, placing and using spiral tubing, and designing successful experiments for your own future projects. It contains enough material to build three infusion trial projects, up to 24" x 13" each:
  • One laminate using EnkaFusion Nylon Matting flow media
  • One laminate using Lantor Soric® flow media
  • One laminate using Divinymat® Sandwich Core flow media

In order to use the kit, you will need the follwing: your own vacuum pump, bagging materials, and vacuum tubing to attach to the bag; your own resin and reinforcement; and, ultimately, a mold with a relatively large flange to make a laminate no larger than 24" x 13".

Kit includes:
  • #505-A Resin Bucket 1 Gallon (x3)
  • #512-B Resin Line Holder (x3)
  • #893 Vacuum Tubing 5'pieces (x3)
  • #1601 Zip Strips (x6)
  • #1400 Filter Jacket 5" (x3)
  • #582 Peel Ply 5'x5" pieces (x3)
  • #1024 Divinymat® 24"x16"
  • #1401 Nylon Matting 24" x 13"
  • #1605-A Flow Regulator (x2)
  • #1606-A Spring Clamp
  • #906-A T-Fittings (x6)
  • #1400 Filter Jacket 18" (x3)
  • #1403 Spiral Tubing 5' pieces (x3)
  • #582 Peel Ply 20" x 5" pieces (x3)
  • #1409 Lantor Soric® 24" x 16.37"
  • Instruction Sheet
 
Resin Trap
Protect your Pump

Don't let resin from the vacuum infusion process destroy your pump. This 2.5-gallon stainless steel, vacuum-sealed tank is installed between the mold and the vacuum pump to capture excess resin that enters the vacuum line before it can damage your equipment.

  • Apply mold release to all interior surfaces of the resin trap prior to lay-up for easy clean-up once infusion is complete.
  • Trap comes complete with vacuum gauge, barbs for use with ½" vacuum tubing, and instruction manual.
  • 17" high, 12" wide; 2.5-gallon capacity

PLEASE NOTE: For larger projects or those where resin does not infuse evenly, install multiple in-line resin traps.
