    The biggest issue we are facing in our yard is too much absorption of resin in the flow media. Its approximately 800 g/m2. Its increasing the cost. Anyone tried a cheaper way or alternative to the infusion mesh/flow media ?
    I also understand that when the gsm of the flow media change, the absorption changes.

    Currently the absorption rate is 30 %. Which means if 100 Kg resin is used, 30 Kg gets absorbed in the flow media and go waste.(Thats huge)

    Any Clever suggestions?
