On Friday, ECS, Pune conducted a new technology update course on the method and use of this exciting reusable vacuum membrane technology for composite moulders.
Even though over 4000 miles away we were linked to the course to provide a question and answer session on Skype covering many good questions like how much filler can be used? Can phenolic resin work under reusables, How big can the system mould. Further, it was possible to show via the video link a train seat moulding illustrating the feature of extremely low wastage almost net size and how these parts have been made over 2500 times without one reject by VPI. We thank ECS for teaching another 24 attendees from the Indian composites sectors.

Using Saertex quadriaxial up to 3.5 kg /m2 fibre loading Rally Tech UK developed reusable vacuum membranes to streamline their production. High fibre content is important and the quadriaxial with Saerfix allows accurate placement and hold in these complex seat shapes. RallyTech client, Motordrive ltd, witnessed the reusable being manufactured this week at our Plymouth facility. The Saertex materials are available in UK from Christex Ltd. This mould reusable membrane has double "H" morph resin runners built in . Morph as some of you know means no peel ply needed as after infusion the runner flattens agaisnt the fibre leaving no trace of resin line. Exceptionally smart !!!
