    I think its a great way to increase the fibre ratio of a laminate , its not without risk nor extra cost however

    A very open question.

    infusion gives more control over fiber to volume ratio, in general is a cleaner process, can reduce fumes (styrene), can correct core installation problems, can allow you to tackle larger jobs with less people, but can bite you in the back, as you do not need laminators, but taylors, there is a learning curve, and you need consumables.

    With more info you could be offered more specific advise.
