Airflex – Uncured silicone intensifier

News International-French

27 Feb 2014

JEC Europe 2014 - Airflex is an uncured silicone rubber especially formulated for use as a pressure intensifier on complex-shape parts during vacuum bagging.

It can also be used to protect the vacuum bag from puncture due to bolt heads. Uncured Airflex can be applied over a release film on a prepreg lay-up. It will cure out in the early stages of cure and will then produce pressure intensification throughout the prepreg curing stage. Alternatively, Airflex can be cured out on its own at 125°C in 20 minutes and then used as a cured intensifier over prepreg lay-ups.


  • Improves part quality and reduces rework
  • Eliminates bridging and reduces scrap
  • Protects bags from puncture, avoiding scrap parts
  • Makes vacuum bagging of complex parts easier
