Lantor Soric® TF in
combination with D7760
In the marine industry there are a number of reasons why a skin coat is applied before
processing the actual constructive laminate:
- To prevent print through of the fabrics and core of the constructive laminate.
- To protect the gel coat / mould when walking in the mould is necessary for
draping the dry laminate pack for Vacuum Infusion.
- To have superior mechanical properties in the skin for protective/impact
When the reason of using a skin coat is to prevent osmosis and print through, there are
Laminates made in Hand Lay-up differ in many ways when compared to laminates made
in Vacuum Infusion. Differences occur in laminate thickness, glass percentages, resin
Because of the higher pressure that is used in vacuum infusion compared to hand lay-up,
the laminate is compressed more resulting in a thinner laminate with less resin, a higher
volume fraction of glass and higher mechanical properties.
The consequences of these new properties though, are increased risk of osmosis and an
increased risk of print through of fabrics and fibers. However, these are issues that can
Conventional y a skin coat is applied to block most of the print through. When the rest of
the laminate is vacuum infused, though, the pressures can stil print through some heavy
fabrics to the outer surface of the laminate. This can be prevented easily by using Lantor
Soric® TF in vacuum infusion just after the skin coat.
Osmosis wil be more of a risk when glass percentages in the skin of the laminate are
higher. With higher glass volume, more possible voids are introduced; more voids create
higher capil ary forces which are the driving force for osmosis. Therefore a laminate
made in vacuum infusion has a higher risk for osmosis. This is why a skin coat is used as
wel ; a more resin rich layer wil have less risk.
The use of a skin coat, however, takes an extra processing step, slow down the process
So, although the skin coat takes care of osmosis and some print blocking, it does
compromise a ful closed mould processing. How can we use the pro’s of a skin coat
without having the disadvantages that come with it?
LANTOR FINISHMAT D7760!
Lantor Finishmat D7760 is an acrylic veil that, because of it’s structure, creates a resin
rich layer when infused. The Lantor Finishmat D7760 al ows infusion of a boat in a single
shot, when used directly to the gel coat (or mould). Tests in Lantor’s lab have shown that
because of this resin rich layer of the Lantor Finishmat D7760 veil, the osmosis
resistance of the Vacuum Infused part is even better than a laminate with a skin coat
applied in hand lay-up. (See photo’s of this test in the appendix). Therefore a skin coat
can be left out and a laminate can be infused in a single shot!
Decrease costs by infusing the hul in a single shot AND
prevent print through of fabrics
and fibers by applying a combination of Lantor Soric TF and Lantor Finishmat D7760 in
the skin of the laminate. Lantor Soric TF wil block the print through of the fabrics and
core used in the constructive laminate. The resin rich layer created by the Lantor
Finishmat D7760 wil both; block print through of the glass fibers in between the Lantor
Finishmat D7760 and Lantor Soric TF; and create a good resin rich layer to prevent
osmosis. A typical lay-up with minimum print through in a single shot infusion is therefore:
Single shot laminate build-up

The samples were submersed in distil ed water of 60 °C during 5 weeks. The pictures
below are taken after 2 weeks. There is quite a difference between the laminates. The
Finishmat laminate has the best surface, than the skin coat laminate and the ful y vacuum
infused sample without D7760 has the worst quality after 2 weeks of submersion.
