THE -ARC –ANGELS , SPECIALIST car body supplies .--NEWS
Tristan White , head of ww.w.the-arc-angles has shown great wisdom in taking on the VPI reusable vacuum membrane process. These original style Mini car wheel spats are cluster moulded almost akin to high pressure thermoplastic moulding but here with high quality and strong reinforced glass fibre.
Using a staggering 60% less resin than consumed by the former hand lay process Tristan’s team are able to mould in 5 minutes a set of four and achieving Zero clean up. The system gives them a professional, far better rear surface finish and consistent thickness. The VPI process allows fill to mould each with the 5 screw down fixing shaped rear bosses. Tristan, remarks they are happy customers for this improvement to efficient frp. production.

Yes, that is my hand on the edge of the heated reusable vacuum membrane. A few mm further in and it is at an incredible 203.8C.
Heats up to this in less than 100 seconds. This shows how resilient and safe our unique in "bag" heating is. Want to do some reinforced thermoplastic vacuum moulding then you need to use this system. The face metal mould is SS 1mm thick and also heated. Power input equivalent to 5kw/m2. This system is running on safe 35vac
