The Vacuum Infusion Process uses vacuum pressure to drive resin into a laminate. Materials are laid dry into the mold and the vacuum is applied. Once a strong vacuum is achieved, resin is pushed by atmospheric pressure into the fiber reinforcements via carefully placed tubing and infusion medium. Vacuum infusion greatly improves the fiber-to-resin ratio, and results in a strong, light product. The VIP process is the most cost-effective molding technique for large parts having low to medium quantities.
