Hi Michiel, but there's no way i can do without adhesive spray due to the type of mold else the weave will distort and hence a ruined part. i can'think of a way i could pull this off without adhesive, please share ticks i could use.

Look for a good clear coat let it cure. Then aply a mist of acetone to let it stick, there you have your adhesive without any surface sh*t.

I pulled some parts for the undercarriage of a car that I sprayed airtac 2 on.
I'm not going for looks, just a light infused part w/soric

I use AirTac2 everyday to stick the carbon fiber on the feet's(skate's).

I do forced infusion with PVA bag 6'' and methyl-methacrylate resin , after 45min to 1 hours , i can demold the pva bag and the finition is perfect !

AircTac 2 is way better then cheap Super 77 3m spray , I switch for AirTac2 two years ago , i will never use super 77 anymore ! Contaminate the carbon and resin. I did test with the two spray glue and the 4 layers of plain weave 6k delaminated on each layer!!. And the AirTac2 was perfect laminated !

Just put a small mist 20cm from the carbon fabric

What resin do you use for your infusion ? Have you try Zyvax Stay-Z Epoxy Spray glue ?

I use PTM&W 2712 epoxy, can't find a source to sample Zyvax local
most of my stuff gets painted, I use a VE primer or surface coat.

(VanDieman-Elan-Carbir)

I have been using the tac 2 for many years.

The Australian Zyvax distributor has informed me that Stay-Z is no longer available. Can you get it in other countries?
