JEC Europe 2015 - Sponsored news - New this year is proven reusable vacuum membrane technology highlighting examples of large membranes handling techniques and the unique innovation of internally heating reaching over 250°C inside the membrane.

A great number of moulders worldwide have come to realize the huge advantages of reusable vacuum membranes.

Manufactured from high quality platinum silicone by seamless spray technique using the “TOPGEAR Six  SilCon” machine model the technology is equally benefitting the advanced composite and aerospace industries as it does for the general FRP moulderLarge 12 m2 reusable vacuum membrane being removed from truck part mould after cure .

New this year at JEC 2015 is proven reusable vacuum membrane technology highlighting examples of large membranes handling techniques and the unique innovation of internally heating reaching over 250°C inside the membrane !

The advance of the company’s VPI ™ (Vacuum Press Infusion) system utilizing reusable vacuum membranes also proves that VPI is now becoming a mainstream composite moulding process for liquid resin rapid filling eg. 35 kg moulded in 6 minutes. If you have not heard of or seen the VPI innovation - JEC visitors should not miss this opportunity.

“Application - RTM and RTM Light, Infusion, VPI  and Prepreg
Reusable our clients all over the world tell us they are saving thousands using our technology to manufacture by liquid resin infusion or pre preg  moulding

  •     Labour bag up times tumble to a few minutes
  •     Bag up labour  is now de skilled requiring 1/2 day training to use
  •     Reusables give pay back after 7 cycles
  •     After 8 cycles your reusable is ZERO cost
  •     From day one user no longer contaminates our world with consumable bagging waste

Consumable bagging are becoming obsolete,  uneconomic and unsound."
