You're welcome to ask questions, that's what the support forum is here for
When you say you're thinking of using a 'high temperature curing epoxy' do you actually mean an epoxy that will only cure at high temperature or do you mean an epoxy that can take a high temperature once it's been cured/post cured?
There really arn't many products out that that sufficiently low viscosity (runny) at room temperature to be able to infuse with them that then won't cure until they reach a high temperature (like 180C). The high temperature curing epoxies that you're most likely to encounter would be the types used in pre-pregs but they're thick and tacky at room temperature, getting much low in viscosity as the temperature increases (as they cure in an oven/autoclave). They certainly wouldn't be suitable for infusion.
If you're referring to a an epoxy that can take a high temperature (like our Extra High Temp epoxy) then you might well be able to use this for infusion; it's not ideal because it's a higher viscosity than you would want for an infusion, but given the right flow media, laminate and set-up it should be possible to infuse with it.
With the high temp epoxies they tend to cure at room temperature and then require a post-cure at elevated temperature in order to realise their full HDT (Heat Distortion Temperature). The first part of the 'post cure' should be done in the mould to avoid distortion, ideally still under a sealed bag (if the part has been infused or vac bagged) up to at least 80C for afew hours. If your entire set-up (the mould, the tape, the film etc.) could take it then you could continue the post cure in-mould up to 180C (the max post-cure temp for our Extra High Temp Resin) but if you mould/tape/film can't take any more temp (it's quite likely that your mould won't for example) then you'd be fine to de-mould and continue the post cure on a steady temperature ramp up to 180C without any real risk of distortion.
The infusion mesh certainly shouldn't leave any 'print through' or texture on the A side (the outside/good side) of your part. The peel-ply seperates the part from the infusion mesh on the the inside (the B side) and so any texture from the mesh even on the inside is kept to a minimum but you will likely see a faint texture of the mesh on the inside of your laminate (although the obvious texture will be that of the impression of the peel ply).
I hope this helps, Matt
