Re: Wrinkley 4 Mil Plastic Sheets

Like you I use 1/4" melamine as top and bottom cauls. Urea formaldehyde can make a bond with melamine in the vacuum bag, and that glue I've been told make a permanent bond with poly vacuum bags, which I have. Wrapping the veneer-core-veneer sandwich with 4 mil plastic is a very efficient way to keep any glue squeezeout from possibly clogging a groove in the bottom platen and from any extraneous smear or squeezeout from coming in contact with the poly bag.
