Vacuum & Fusion Molding

Elkem Silicones Solutions for Silicone Reusable Vacuum Bags for Faster Processing

The Challenge:
Historically the composite industry has been using plastic bags and tapes when casting models. This production step is time consuming and requires skilled personnel. When you want to make a new copy this production step starts over again.

Results:
The silicone vacuum infusion molding technology allows you to increase your production speed. The silicones are liquid solutions that you spray or brush where you previously placed the plastic bag and tapes. The silicone turns into an elastic film. After having casted your part, you peel off the silicone bag and use it again next time you mold.

The number of times you can use the silicone mold depend on the material composition you use in your process. Silicone reusable vacuum bags are an easy-to-use alternative to save time in your production steps.
