Vacuum Infusion Process
The Vacuum Infusion Process (VIP) is a technique that uses vacuum pressure to drive resin into a FRP laminate. Materials are laid dry into the mold and the vacuum is applied before resin is introduced. Once a complete vacuum is created it allows the resin to be infused into the laminate. Any excess resin may be sucked out of the laminate using a similar vacuum process.
At Beetle Composites our vacuum infusion provides a number of key benefits to our customers including a better fiber-to-resin ratio ultimately resulting in a lighter and stronger product.
