The Fortress Stabilization Process
Surface Preparation Or Peel Ply Prepared Surfaces
Peel ply is polyester or nylon cloth material applied to the completed laminate while the resin is still wet. This cloth will not adhere to wet layup.
The purpose of the peel ply: Knowing the finished laminate will be laminated to another wet bonding agent to create another laminate. The peel ply produces a grooved non-amine bonding surface. Peel ply provides the added benefit of absorbing resin from composite skins.
This technology has been used for many years in the Aero Space, Nautical/Marine and Aircraft industries. Most resins after curing produce an amine blush, which is not a desirable bonding surface. Peel ply allows for a re-bondable surface that requires no additional preparation once the peel ply is removed. The peel ply also produces a grooved surface for secondary bonding. An added benefit is the carbon's bonding area remains clean and ready for lamination regardless of whether the environment is unclean, as is the case in most construction or job sites.
