A laminate made with the Vacuum Bag Only (VBO) prepregs can be cured out of autoclave. Because of low curing pressure such a process can result in deterioration of laminate mechanical properties. They can be significantly lower than those displayed by the autoclave cured ones. The resistance against delamination can be among the most affected. Since this property is a week point of all the laminates it was of particular interest. Delamination resistance of unidirectional laminate made from VBO
