Economical release fabric is a tough, finely woven nylon fabric treated with a release agent. It is used to separate the absorber, breather and vacuum bag from the laminate in vacuum bagging operations. Excess epoxy bleeds through and is peeled from the cured laminate along with the release fabric.
• Used in hand lay-up applications to allow more squeegee pressure
• Protects the lay-up from contamination
• Peels easily and leaves a smooth textured surface
• Not recommended for post-cure temperatures over 120°F
