Flow Medium and Infusion Experiments

Got a big roll of flow medium yesterday. Enkafusion 7001. Could only be bought by the 250 foot roll (at a reasonable price). This is great stuff. Takes a lot of the guesswork out of resin infusion. Nothing more frustrating like trying to predict resin flow. So, with the flow medium, a small experiment on infusing glass over a piece of foam against a "simulated" fiberglass hull. As can be seen in the pictures, the results a below. This is just one layer of biaxial glass. The "lines" that can be seen are "flow channels" that were cut with the table saw.
