It's in the Bag

Vacuum bagging is a clamping system used for laminating a wide range of fabrics, core materials and veneers. It uses atmospheric pressure to deliver a firm even clamping pressure over the entire surface area of a composite or repair. WEST SYSTEM 879 Release Fabric and 881 Breather Fabric help make the process of vacuum bagging easier. A tough, finely woven nylon fabric treated with a release agent, 879 Release Fabric is used to separate the absorber, breather and vacuum bag from the laminate. Excess epoxy bleeds through it and is easily peeled from the cured laminate along with the fabric, leaving a smooth textured surface ready for bonding or finishing. Release Fabric can also be used in hand lay-up applications to allow more squeegee pressure and protect the lay-up from contamination. WEST SYSTEM 879 Release Fabric is offered in 9-inch sheets and two or 10-yard rolls that measure 60-inches wide. Constructed from lightweight polyester, 881 Breather Fabric provides excellent air passage within the vacuum envelope while it absorbs excess epoxy. It measures 45-inches wide and comes in a 10-yard roll. Prices for WEST SYSTEM 879 Release Fabric start at $9.22 and 881 Breather Fabric costs $74-88. For top-notch vacuum bagging, the company also offers 882 Vacuum Bagging Film and 883 Vacuum Bagging Sealant. WEST SYSTEM, 866-937-8797,
