Prairie Technology Group (Hutto, TX, US) produces silicone materials and spraying equipment used to make SWORL reusable vacuum bags. Announced this past fall, Composites One (Arlington Heights, IL, US) now distributes SWORL products for all composites industries excluding aerospace.

Prairie Technology Group president Larry Audette explains that SWORL’s high tear strength eliminates the need for fabric reinforcement. SWORL technology also removes the need to maintain a wet edge during application, enabling bag thickness to be built up in layers or large bags to be made in multiple sprayings even hours apart.
