The SmartValve principle is to improve the vacuum bagging process while saving time and cost.
Thanks to the SmartValves, you won’t need to make incisions in the vacuum bags anymore or have mechanics holding hoses during the vacuum build-up: they are easy, stable and robust !
The SmartValves are made for flat & curved surfaces
so that you can use them on every part, no matter where the area to be repaired may be
They were invented by one of our agents, M. Bert Groenewoud
from EFC Composites
, who is also a trainer in Composite Repair
GMI Aero is distributing the whole range of SmartValves : Wide, Narrow and Pleat.
