The vacuum infusion process brings all of the environmental advantages of a closed mold process, where styrene emissions are minimized due to the resin curing in a closed environment. It also provides an excellent glass-to-resin ratio with minimal to no voids in the finished laminate. This allows for one of the strongest ways of building a composite laminate.
The working environment for VIP is far superior to any open molding environment.
