EZ~Brush® Vac Bag Silicone Rubber Offers Several Advantages Over Conventional Vacuum Bagging Materials
A tool used to produce the hull of the Vapor Optimist racing boat is prepared for production and a channel is routered into the tool that will aid in providing an airtight seal between the tool and the vacuum bag. Next, mix and vacuum the EZ~Brush® Vac Bag Silicone and pour it over the profile. Apply three layers of EZ~Brush® silicone to all surfaces, forming a continuous rubber vacuum bag. Allow all layers to cure. The bag is strong, durable and dimensionally stable.
Use a routered channel to hold the bag in place and ensure perfect vacuum pressure. Spray a resin gel coat over the tool. Use rollers to laminate layers of glass matting with resin. Then, apply release film and a breather. Put the EZ~Brush® vacuum bag into position, securing the edges using the channel routered into the tool in the previous step. Pull the vacuum and check the structure for air leaks.
Once the resin has cured, remove the EZ~Brush® bag and store it for future use. The finished part reflects perfect detail and a flawless surface finish. The EZ~Brush® silicone bag cuts production time of the Vapor Optimist by 1/3. This Vapor Optimist sailboat was made by LaserPerformance.
