  author={Tuo Hung Hou and Brian James Jensen},
A nonautoclave vacuum bag process using atmospheric pressure alone that eliminates the need for external pressure supplied normally by an autoclave or a press is an attractive method for composite fabrication. This type of process does not require large capital expenditures for tooling and processing equipment. The traditional single-vacuum-bag (SVB) process is best suited for molding epoxy matrix-based composites because of their superior flow and the absence of reaction byproducts or other… CONTINUE READING
