Selecting the right materials for the vacuum bagging process just got easier with our pre-made kits. These kits include all of the materials you need to give vacuum bagging a try on your own. You can use these kits to produce parts entirely from carbon fiber, Kevlar, fiberglass or any other composite material. You will receive the following materials with the kit. We have 4 different kit sizes that will fit your needs.
Please note the image shown is of the Complete Bagging System Kit. The Small, Medium, and Large kits will not include the vacuum pump or fittings, catch pot, vacuum bag connector, resin, and Carbon Fiber fabric. Items and quantities included in each size kit are listed below.
This kit includes the standard bagging materials needed to make a part. If you do not have any vacuum equipment you will need to purchase our complete bagging kit that will have everything you need to make a part. This is not a cheap kit like many places online are selling. These items are the same items used in composite shops across the world. Featuring well known, brand name products from the composite industry such as Airtech, General Sealants, CCP, and 3M

All of the items in the kit are available for purchase individually in our store. If you run out of a certain material we can sell any single item by itself. We take care of your materials and make sure they are always rolled onto tubes for shipment. We have purchased kits from our competitors all over the world and we have received materials that are folded. This can create a pinch point which can put a hole in your bag and cause you endless trouble. As a full time composite shop, we know how you need to receive your materials in order to have the least amount of issues throughout your project.
