Pressure Strip

Huntington Beach, CA - November 1, 2012

Pressure Strip is an uncured modified butyl rubber designed to be placed in corners where pressure is difficult to apply with only a vacuum bag. Pressure Strip will cure on a 120°C (250°F) or a 176°C (350°F) lay-up in an autoclave or oven. Maximum use temperature is 230°C (450°F). Pressure Strip is used as an expendable item and discarded after each cure. Pressure Strip is applied on top of the release film in the corner of the lay-up prior to vacuum bagging. Pressure Strip is a compound of butyl rubber, resin plasticizers and fillers. There are no silicones used in the manufacture of this product.

Benefits Include:

  • A pressure intensifier that eliminates excess resin due to low pressure in difficult to bag corners.
  • Reduces scrap and MRB tags on production parts.
  • Can be used during the production process without re-tooling.
  • Inexpensive, temporary caul for prototyping and serial productions parts.
  • Wide processing window for cures from 120°C (250°F) to 176°C (350°F) in an autoclave or oven, avoid need for multiple intensifier products.
  • No contamination risk. Made of Silicone free uncured modified butyl rubber.
  • Reduces mark off on part in comparison to metallic loose tooling due to excellent flow of rubber.
