Also known as “VARTM”. Dry cloth is placed in a mold according to the layup schedule then a vacuum bag is placed over the fibers. Resin is introduced from outside of the bag using strategically placed resin suction tubes and other methods to wet out the dry pack. When the entire laminate is wet out the resin tubes are clamped off and the laminate is allowed to cure. This process produces high quality parts with good consolidation and very few voids.
