Vacuum Infusion

Vacuum Infusion

Vacuum Infusion

(OP)
Noob to the forums and to vacuum infusion. I have recently started in on doing some carbon fiber with the lay up technique and need to venture into vacuum infusion.

Other than the CF what other materials and what layered order do I lay them?

Bottom to top -

1. Carbon fiber
2. Peel ply?
3. Flow media mesh?
4. vacuum bag


Sure there is something missing.

Thanks

Wow a week and no reply. I guess these forums are dead as I highly doubt this is a difficult question. Oh well. Thanks anyways

RE: Vacuum Infusion

Your question is way too broad. The forum is for engineering tips not how-to manuals. If you get one of 100 details wrong, your infusion will fail.

RE: Vacuum Infusion

(OP)
Well if it was to broad then a friendly reply asking for more info or such would have been helpful at least. Its cool. No worries.

RE: Vacuum Infusion

Use glass fiber cloth until your process is worked out; no sense making garbaage with carbon.

Crank up your Google.
You can actually learn a lot from five million stories about making cold air induction tubes.

eBook - Mastering Tolerances for Machined Parts
When making CNC machined parts, mastering tolerances can be challenging. Are general tolerances good enough? When does it make sense to call out for tighter tolerances? Do you need a better understanding of fits, datums, or GD&T? Learn about these topics and more in Xometry's new e-book. Download Now
eBook – How to Choose the Correct Corrosion Testing Method
When designing a metal component, engineers have to consider how susceptible certain alloys are to corrosion in the final product’s operating environment. In a recent study by NACE (National Association of Corrosion Engineers), it was estimated that the direct and indirect costs of corrosion in the United States is approximately 6.2% of the GDP. In 2016, that cost exceeded $1 trillion dollars for the first time. Download Now
