Richmond Aerovac launches STRETCHVAC3000

Richmond Aerovac, part of UMECO Composites, is proud to announce the launch of STRETCHVAC3000 film, the newest addition to the market leading STRETCHVAC range of vacuum bagging films.

STRETCHVAC3000 is ideally suited to high temperature extended autoclave cures and is compatible with the majority of commonly used aerospace grade resin systems, including BMIs.

Boeing recently qualified and switched to STRETCHVAC3000 due to its superior adhesion to sealant tape, retention of mechanical properties during lengthy cure cycles (10+ hours) and improved quality performance in comparison to other aerospace approved vacuum bagging films.

Randy, senior composites engineer, in Seattle said "It's awesome! This film has given us increased confidence in our bagging processes and demonstrated improved security compared to our existing film."

The film is widely used for composite manufacture in both roll stock and welded/kitted formats.

STRETCHVAC3000 is manufactured on UMECO Composites 'state of the art' blown extrusion line and is available in a wide variety of widths, thicknesses and formats.
