Doesen't the peel ply get stuck in the epoxy.
How do you get it of when it's ready.
I use ripstop nylon for peel-ply. Under vacuum the excess epoxy can flow through tiny holes in the nylon and into the breather material.
In test layups where I used way too much epoxy I ended up with both the peel ply and the breather totally saturated with epoxy. The peel-ply still comes off with not too much dificulty.
peel-ply is strong but very strechy (unlike epoxy) and the epoxy does not stick well to it. I cut the peel-ply layer out a little oversize so that the corners overhang the outline of the board and usually do not get wetted-out with epoxy. To remove all you do is grab a loose corner and gently but firmly pull towards one of the other corners of the board.
