Vacuum bagging is a clamping system used for laminating a wide range of fabrics, core materials and veneers. The WEST SYSTEM® 885 Vacuum Bagging Kit contains all the tools and accessories necessary for laminating projects on a small scale.
The vacuum bagging method is an effective alternative to conventional clamping. It is particularly well suited to repairs and composite construction. This is because the vacuum bagging technique uses atmospheric pressure to deliver firm, even clamping pressure over the entire surface area, regardless of the type or quantity of material being laminated. The technique is also useful for moulding composites into a wide range of functional shapes – simply laminate over simple moulds.
