Vacuum Infused Molding

Vacuum Infused Molding or (Vacuum Assisted Resin Transfer Molding) is molding performed with pressure assistance inside the cavity of a closed mold. A VIM mold has two rigid surfaces. The flexible film is sealed to the rigid surface. There are two vents to the sealed mold. One vent is used to remove air from the mold cavity and another to permit the liquid resin to be drawn into the cavity through negative pressure. Once the resin is cured, the part is removed from the rigid mold producing a uniform composite part. 


Advantages of Vacuum Assisted Resin Transfer Molding include:
  • High quality parts
  • High strength
  • Flexible tooling
  • Lower ventilation costs
  • Low investment costs
  • No trimming
  • Better control of glass ratio
Vacuum Infused Molding Examples:
  • Ballistic panels
  • Prototypes
  • Roofs
  • Inner structure reinforcements
  • Wind Turbine
