Nylon vacuum film is .002"
thick, 48" wide: v-fold. Elongation
at break 350+, tensile
strength - 8000 psi, maximum
temperature use -
390°F, Melt point minimum 414
degree F, Yield: 24,500 inch x2/#/mil.
Color- green/blue, shelf life - 18 months. Price is
Room temperature to 200
degree F, this film is very
dependable and releases
easily from the sealant, so
expect to use the same piece
of film for all the compaction
cycles. Color: blue, tensile
strength: 4000 psi, tear resistance: 400 ply, ultimate
elongation: 430%, width: 55 inches. Price is
Release Ply B is a heat set
and scoured smooth weave
nylon fabric used as a release
fabric directly against
bond lines or laminated
where a finish for subsequent
bonding or painting is needed. Excellent for
controlling adhesive squeeze out, release B, may
stick on 350 degree F cures, and works well on
all fiberglass/epoxy laminates. 60" width, white
nylon weight: 2 oz., Grab tensile: warp - 110 lbs.
filling - 140 lbs (min). Price is per yard.
Exhibits superior release qualities over the entire temperature range. The elongation allows for superior conformability for irregular shapes. Elongations: 550%, maximum temperatures 600 degrees F, thickness: .001, width: 48", color: red. Price is per yard.
Blue, 54# wide, .002 thick release
material. Elongation - 300%, maximum
temperature use: 400
degree F. Shrinkage 2.5%
at 400 degree F. Releases
without contamination from phenolics,
epoxies and polyesters. 18 mo shelf life.
Price is per yard.
4 oz. 60" wide, 1/8" thick polyester
breather material that stretches to
all contours. One layer will
conduct air at 50 psi. N4 is
not a release material and
should be used with release
film - #4600. Maximum use temperature - 400
degree F. Price is per yard.
Ply B peel ply coated with a
release agent that releases
all aircraft resins up to 400
degrees F. Use with R300
sensitive tape as all coated
peel plies have the potential
to transfer. 60" wide, 2 oz. nylon peel ply is .004 -
.005 thickness. Grab tensile: warp - 110 LBS. filling
- 140 LBS. minimum. Price is per yard.
2 piece cast aluminum valve
makes vacuum bag connections
positive and fast. Simply
insert through bag by
cutting an X in the film, the
round bottom base plate is
designed to keep breather
from compressing under the
plate and sealing off. Successfully
tested to hold 29 inches of mercury and 200
psi at temperatures up to 500 degrees F.
AQD500TF high temperature
disconnects are two way
shut off fittings. When disconnected,
air flow is shut
off in both the plug and socket
allowing your vac valve to remain under vacuum
pressure after being disconnected. Parts can be
moved without losing vacuum. The socket or coupler
is equipped with a threaded female fitting
that creates an air tight seal when inserted into
airflow. The plug portion has a female 1/4" standard
pipe thread. The sleeve portion of the coupler
portion retracts upward, away from opening
the receives the plug half. This sleeve is spring
loaded so when released it returns to original position.
Sleeve must be retracted before coupling
is achieved and must return to original position to
create an airtight seal ...
Durable vacuum gauge determines
how much vacuum pressure
is under your vacuum bag.
Gauge is calibrated in both
inches of mercury ad metric
units and has a rubber jacket to
protect it from damage. The
stem is 1/4" pipe thread that can
be used with the AQD500 quick disconnect.
To get a reading place the
gauge in the diagonal corner from your vacuum
port. After pulling full vacuum, disconnect vacuum
source. Allow a little air to reenter through
port and within seconds the gauge should register
a drop in pressure. Reads 0 to 30 lbs. per sq.
inch. 0 to 100 KPA
Wax based compound useful
as a general purpose parting
agent on metal molds as
well as a prime coat for part all
mold release. A thin coat
evenly applied to a mold is
usually good for 3-5 cycles.
Simply apply the paste to the
mold surface, allow to dry, then
For brushing or spraying on molds
to prevent resin from sticking to
the mold. A green viscous
water/alcohol film-forming solution,
water soluble, particularly
recommended as a parting layer
or separator between polyester or
epoxy resin and mold surfaces of
most kinds. Not recommended for
use with resins containing water or
giving off water during the cure-phenolics for instance.
#10 part all is generally applied at room
temperature to form a smooth, very glossy film.
Will not shrink and pull away from corners or
curved surfaces. After resin is cured the film will
part easily from the mold and is readily dissolved
from the molded parts with water. Use after tool
has been paste waxed with part all paste. QT -
