With the aim of completing the full range of vacuum bags, Mates is also able to supply silicones and specific machinery for self-construction of permanent vacuum bags; furthermore, thanks to the partnership with Piekenbrink ®, leading company in this field, we can offer ready-to-use solutions composed by molds and bags made by customer’s design / specification. Permanent vacuum bags will replace vacuum films conventionally sealed with the butyl tape. This innovative system allows to reduce the process labor cost, eliminating the long and difficult phase of sealing the vacuum bag; being reusable too, they completely cancel the cost of consumable materials normally used in the production processes of advanced composites. This bag family has been specially designed for processing through autoclave, although the intrinsic quantity and technical requirements make it also suitable for conventional composite component manufacturing techniques such as hand lay-up, vacuum technology and infusion.
- Reduce of labor cost
- High compatibility with matrices
