For enclosures only i think a vacuum setup is overkill. I have all the parts to start playing with vacuum bagging now so i’ve been doing a lot of research.
I got my supplies from Fibreglast. Not cheap.
Film/bag - Stetchlon 800
Release Film - Low Temp Perfed Release Film.
Breather Fabric - 4oz Breather/Bleeder Fabric.
Sealant Tape - Gray Sealant Tape: (½" wide; 1⁄8" thick; 25 feet). (you can also try cheaper “butyl” tape)
I also got some release Fabric to compare with the film. Film is supposed to be shiny but perfed may pull too much epoxy out. The fabric gives a matte texture and less epoxy is lost. Not sure so will try both.
Not exactly what i got - but here’s the Fibreglast Release Film ( i got the West System 879 Release Fabric instead).
So that’s the materials. Then you need vacuum…
Two options - a vacuum pump (1 or 2 stage). 1 stage is loud, 2 stage is quiet and faster and more expensive. You can google how to make a vacuum pump from an air pump/compressor or a refrigerator coolant pump.
Robinair or similar are well known in the AC/Automotive trades. $$
Option 2 - Venturi pump - hook up to your air compressor and it creates vacuum.
A third option - hand pump. There is one in this kit.
Material - I’ve had good luck with some suppliers on ebay for relatively inexpensive CF. I personally would practice with some GF/Fiberglass first until i felt comfortable doing it.
You might also look at vacuum forming ABS/Kydex as a start for just enclosures. I’m planning on doing a layup like freshair on a deck so might also do the enclosure so it’s more seamless…
Start reading lox! tons of info out there. one nice thing about fibreglast site in particular is their videos in each of the areas on the product. lots of good info.
