VIDEO TUTORIAL

In-Depth Guide to Resin Infusion

In this fifth and last video in our Dark Ice Project tutorial series, we take a really deep-dive into the practical techniques of resin infusion.

Using the large 3 metre sledge mould that was made during the series, this final tutorial covers the resin infusion of the Kevlar reinforced mouldings.

The tutorial includes guidance on:

  • Best practices for placing the reinforcement
  • Including '3D Core' core material in a laminate
  • Determining where to position feed lines and spiral
  • Where to position vacuum lines
  • Vacuum bagging technique and drop-testing
  • Running the infusion itself
