Subject : RE: platen for glueing torsion box skins Posted : 2023-03-31 12:35 PM Post #38030 - In reply to #38029
A couple things. First, I would strongly recommend you glue both skins on at the same time for stability and preventing possible warping. You do need some kind of platen board with grooves in it otherwise the air will get trapped in the bag. You could use some netting like our Evacunet for this purpose. I personally prefer the platen board. You didnt mention what is the rib spacing on the torsion box. Too much space and the 1/2”MDO will deflect between ribs.
