complex lightweight parts.

VAP® membrane-assisted low pressure infusion  Pdf (64 KB)
The trapped air and reaction gases typical for closed infusion processes can result in
weak spots in the finished lightweight components. The EADS-patented Vacuum¥
Assisted Process (VAP®) uses the characteristics of semi-permeable state-of-the-art
membrane systems to exert vacuum over the entire area of a resin-infused mould to
remove trapped air and volatiles in an efficient and reliable manner.
