Airtech developments for HT bagging

Airtech Advanced Materials, based in Huntington Beach, California, is introducing new ultra-high temperature vacuum bagging materials for thermoplastic moulding processes up to 427°C.

Thermalimide RCBS is a high performance release film treated on both sides for cure temperatures up to 405°C. It is an ideal release film used during the forming process of thermoplastic materials and other high temperature applications.

Its benefits include its safe use at high temperatures, the excellent release from cured parts, with the film coming off easily and quickly, and flexibility for applying pressure over simple contoured shapes.

Fast Tack HT is a new generation sealant tape for high temperature applications up to 427°C. It builds tack quickly when applied to Thermalimide and its good room temperature adhesion to the high temperature bagging film reduces the time required to vacuum bag high temperature parts. It is easy to use and adheres well to polyimide films.

Airweave UHT 300PGL and UHT 450PGL are premium nonwoven blended fibreglass breathers for ultra-high temperature applications said to be safer than woven fibreglass alternatives for an easier transition for the vacuum bag and in any radius. One layer provides good breathing to 427°C. The materials are designed for use with high temperature thermoset and thermoplastic resin systems.
