• PI - Vacuum Blankets "VB"

    We have spent years formulating our own proprietary formulations to meet the demand put on today's silicone membranes used in the woodworking industry. This particular formulation is produced specifically for the wood manufacturing facilities throughout the world. With our state of the art manufacturing methods (picture below) we are able to produce membranes without any seams up to 74" wide! These membranes feature high elongation, high tear strength, and low compression set. They are generally produced with a super fine fabric finish on both sides. This finish is highly sought after because of its ability to very quickly wick out all air during Vacuum procedures. Smooth finish is also available. These membranes have amazing reusability, durability, and also have extraordinary "Drawdown" strength and resiliency. This makes its performance remarkable when exposed to the high pressures and elevated temperatures they encounter.

  • PI - Vacuum Blankets "VB"

    This particular specially compounded formulation is produced specifically for the Aerospace/Aircraft manufacturing facilities throughout the world. It meets all the stringent requirements of the Federal Procurement Specification known as ZZR-765E Class 3B Grade 50. This 50 durometer high strength silicone sheet is produced with a fine textured fabric finish on both sides. This finish is highly sought after because of its ability to very quickly wick out all air during Vacuum Bagging procedures. It has amazing reusability, durability and it also will Slide or Float over layed up parts with great ease. This product has extraordinary "Drawdown" strength and resiliency. This makes it's performance remarkable when exposed to the high pressures and elevated temperatures it can encounter in autoclaves during cure cycles of composite structures. In the cured or uncured form it allows the fabricator unparalleled versatility in designing intricate shapes and contours. Another characteristic is it's excellent resistance to weathering, ozone, hot water, low pressure steam, alcohols, diethelyene glycol and average resistance to petroleum base oils. However, it is not recommended for service in aromatic solvents, fuels, chlorinated solvents and acids. When speaking of service temperature ranges one can consistently expect -100F to +450F. This high strength silicone sheet is available in both the Uncured and Cured form in a wide variety of thicknesses. Also, the widths of these sheets are available up to 72" wide without a splice! The physical properties below are for the most popular high strength silicone sheet.
