It took minutes for great submissions to start rolling in on our new “Send Us Your Pictures” campaign. The early entries include custom carbon fiber longboards, sporty autocross cars and manned aircraft replicas. (For more information about the drive, see the submission page.) You’ll see more of these projects and others in the coming weeks [...]

Vacuum Bagging is a technique employed to create mechanical pressure on a laminate during its cure cycle. Pressurizing a composite lamination serves several functions. First, it removes trapped air between layers. Second, it compacts the fiber layers for efficient force transmission among fiber bundles and prevents shifting of fiber orientation during cure. Third, it reduces humidity. Finally, and most important, the vacuum bagging technique optimizes the fiber-to-resin ratio in the composite part.
