NOW,MORE CHOICES, MORE POWER!!!
The Pro 6 & 10


Mold and vacuum board not included.
T
he MARK 6 and MARK 10 are electronically regulated, completely self contained, rotary vane vacuum pumps . They do not require an air compressor to create a vacuum. These pumps have been especially modified to match them perfectly with the vacuum bag veneering, forming and clamping applications. The system is controlled by an illuminated, three position switch giving the operator the choice of having the vacuum flow continuous for clamping or cycled through the adjustable vacuum level switch for bagging. The purpose of the cycled or bagging mode is to turn off the pump once it has reached a preset level, in this case all our switches are pre set to 25"Hg, and to re-start it when the vacuum level falls. This cycling mode keeps the bag at full vacuum but doesn't allow the pump to overheat and activate the electronic, thermal relay switch that is built into each rotary vane pump as an extra protection. When using the clamping mode the pump will automatically bypass the micro switch and reach its maximum vacuum of between 26 to 27" Hg.

REGULATOR:
Mark II Electronic Pump Controller
Specifically designed to automatically cycle old electric vacuum pumps off and on when they reach a pre-set level of vacuum. The purpose of this cycling is to prevent the pump from overheating from prolonged use when vacuum bagging. A front panel, illuminated, three position switch allows the operator to select either the cycling mode or to bypass the vacuum level micro control switch when using it in the clamping mode. To operate you simply plug the pumps power cord and vacuum line into the back of the controller and everything after that is automatically controlled from the front panel

VACUUM BAGS:
We offer, as standard, in stock products ready to ship vacuum bags for veneering and forming in three different materials and a variety of sizes. Each type of material has unique properties that make them ideally suited for different applications. From the “all around” versatility and economy of vinyl, the perfect choice for the small shop and semi-professional to the higher production durability of polyurethane with its particular conforming properties to the new “fast evacuation” vinyl bags which are ideal for lamination of flat stock. In addition, we can make any size bag, to your specifications, in about five days or less. All of our bags are made with the finest materials available, to our rigid specifications and are unconditionally guaranteed against manufacturing defects.


Vinyl
Bag Specifications and Benefits:

1. Heat welded seams guaranteed not to come apart.
2. Three track, “quick-zip” closure system for easy, fast and positive bag sealing.
3. Clampless, press fit, air tight vacuum hose connection electrically welded to the bag eliminating the need to cut a hole in the bag or to use nuts and washers to seal-off the access hole.
4. Low, economical cost.
5. Completely transparent, water clear film.
6. Easy to repair tears or punctures.
7. 280 lb. tear strength resistance.
8. 2x to 3x elongation or “stretch-ability”.

9. .020 Thickness


Electronically welded through-valve.

 
Unique three track “quick-zip” vinyl bag closure system.

Comments:

These vinyl bags have been manufactured and sold to hundreds of satisfied customers since 1997. They have also been used as pool liners and as water bed mattresses for decades with excellent results. There has been the concern that vinyl is not as strong, or puncture resistant, as polyurethane and to a large extent that is true. However, the comparison would be better made if you said that polyurethane was like steel and vinyl was like aluminum, both very strong materials and able to withstand almost any usage. With proper care, vinyl bags will have a useful life every bit as long as any other material; plus the cost of vinyl bags is so low that many users will elect to have bags in two or three sizes, often at slightly less cost than a single polyurethane bag. This is the perfect small shop bag.

 



CLOSING THE BAG

The Triple Track E-Z zip Vinyl bag eliminates those difficult to use bars and clamps to seal the bag. Our “triple track” closure system makes sealing the bag a snap!
Our poly bags use a C-Clamp to seal each side, clamps are included.

 


Polyurethane
Bag Specifications and Benefits:

1. Seamless construction, guaranteed not to
come apart.
2. “C” clamp closure system, open both ends for
easy handling - 2 “C” clamps supplied with
each bag.
3. Electrically welded, clampless, press fit, air
tight vacuum hose connection.
4. 400 lb. tear strength resistance.
5. 4x to 6x elongation or “stretchability”.

6. .020" or .030" Thickness


“C” clamp closure system, standard with all poly bags.

Comments:
Polyurethane is unquestionably stronger and more durable than vinyl making it the perfect product for a hard working, production environment. Its “stretchability” also makes it ideal for highly curved or arched work. It also stays more flexible over a greater temperature range so you don’t have to worry about the bag being too stiff to work with in a cool shop. Polyurethane also has a significantly greater puncture and tear resistance than vinyl which is also beneficial in a busy production area. All things being equal, both type of bags will last a very long time if proper care is exercised but for a high production application polyurethane is definitely the material of choice.

 

We can make any size bag to your specifications.

GLUE FOR VACUUM BAGGING:
RECOMMENDED GLUE AND INSTRUCTIONS
:
We recommend an epoxy resin glue for vacuum bagging. It is the same resin that is used in the boating industry and can be obtained at most marine supply dealers. This glue has a hardener that you add and does have limited working time. You must have everything ready before you mix-up your glue resin. A thickener is also recommended and you can get this with your resin or you can use Talcum or, baby powder. Titebond2, yellow wood glue is also used, follow Vacuum Clamping instructions below.

veneer bond dry resin
6 oz. Tub - 32 units/case                                                               $144.00 Case
14 oz. tub - 32 units/case                                                              $178.50 case
5 lb. tub - 4 units/case                                                                $80.50 case
25 lb. pail - 1 unit                                                                        $66.00 Pail

veneer bond high performance pva
8 oz. w/glue spreader tip - 12 units/case                                 $41.00 case
16 oz. w/glue spreader tip - 12/case                                          $56.25 case
1 qt w/glue spreader tip - 12/case                                             $91.50 case
1 gal, capped - 4/case                                                                     $79.25 case
PRO-GLUE “HIGH PERFORMANCE” PVA is an unconventional poly vinyl acetate that is similar to the typical yellow and white “carpenters” glue except that it has 67% solids compared to the typical glues whose solid content is 54-56%. This means that it is “stickier” creating a stronger bond since more of it stays in the joint where it is needed and it dries harder loosing much of the typical pva “creep” that is associated with the less solid brands.    

veneer bond veneer softener
    1 gallon  -                                                                                 $29.40 GALLON

TIPS

 


Recommended Products for Vacuum Clamping:
Epoxy Resin
Hardener
Thickener, Talcum or Baby Powder
1/8" x 1/16" Disposable Plastic Trowels.
Clear Plastic Food Wrap
Box Tape
Plastic Cups and Bowls

(*Titebond2 is also used by some of our customers, some instructions below can be ignored when using Titebond2)

Mixing Instructions:
Follow MFG Instructions and/or:
1. Have plastic containers ready for mixing.
2. The hardener is mixed in at 1:5
3. Mix until a uniform color is achieved.
4. Add thickener to thicken almost to a "mayonnaise" consistency.

Vacuum Clamping:
Follow Instructions included with your machine and/or:
1. Spread out glue with trowel on your substrate, not veneer.
2. Place veneer in position on substrate. Use box tape to hold in place.
 Tip: Try not to get glue resin on veneer face, will show up on when finishing.
3. Use clear plastic food wrap to cover up edges where glue will squeeze out.
4. Place project in Vacuum Bag on top of your clamping board or form.
5. Seal Vacuum Bag and turn on the Vacuum unit.
6. You should leave your project in the bag for at least 3-1/2 hrs.
 Tip: Clamp time may differ with climates, longer for wood forming. See Glue MFG specs.

Clamping Boards & Forms:
A clamping board is put in your bag before clamping. Operators usually have a few different sized boards for their projects. The board is usually at least 4" larger than the project on all sides. A 3/4" 2-sided melamine board is what we recommend for the clamping board because it allows you to easily slide in and out your project. Shallow cuts must be made into this clamping board on the front and back, about 1/32" deep is fine and the hose must protrude through the bag into a hole in the edge of the clamping board that in turn, is ported into the cuts you have made. Lastly, round-over and sand the outer edges of the board and sand the shallow cuts you have made.

Forms are used for making custom curved plywood pieces or other items. These are done may different ways and made of wood. You must build your form very strong to withstand the 1700lbs per sq. ft. that the unit will supply. For custom forming, we recommend the Pro 5 kit as the smallest kit to be used.

Closing:
Vacuum Clamping is a procedure that has many different techniques. Many users have their own tricks they have perfected. Experimenting with your system can be fun and educational for individual users and profitable for your business.

Always follow manufacturer recommendations also for mixing, storage  and safety warnings.
