Description

Vacuum and Atmosphere Bag Sealing Chamber

The stainless steel chamber is used for bag sealing under vacuum or with an inert atmosphere.

Ideally suited to composite bagging for batch curing, vacuum packaging and packaging within an inert atmosphere such as nitrogen or argon to eliminate oxygen and consequentially oxides whilst in storage. 

Vacuum bagging is a technique employed to create mechanical pressure on a laminate during its cure cycle. Pressurising a composite lamination serves several functions. First, it removes trapped air between layers. Second, it compacts the fibre layers for efficient force transmission among fibre bundles and prevents shifting of fibre orientation during cure. Third, it reduces humidity. Finally, and most important, the vacuum bagging technique optimises the fibre-to-resin ratio in the composite part.

These advantages have for years enabled aerospace and racing industries to maximise the physical properties of advanced composite materials such as carbon, aramid, and epoxy. 

The product is placed within a heat seal bag and placed within the chamber. A vacuum is then pulled down to draw away the atmosphere. Once the desired forced is achieved the integral pneumatically operated bag thin film bag sealer closes the bag and holds the vacuum. This allows multiple bags to be prepared and then cured in a single operation externally.
