Hand lay-up is the simplest and oldest method of composite fabrication. It’s a low volume, labor intensive method used to manufacture boat parts, swimming pools, spas, automotive parts, among many others. Fiberglass mat and other reinforcing materials such as woven roving, knitted fiberglass, carbon, Kevlar, etc. is applied manually in the open mold. Resin is poured, brushed, or sprayed into the layers of reinforcement. Entrapped air is removed manually with squeegees or rollers to complete the laminated structure. Room temperature curing polyesters and epoxies resins are the most commonly used. Curing is initiated by adding catalyst to the resin system, which hardens with the above mentioned reinforcements, usually without external heat. For a high quality part surface, a pigmented gel coat is first applied to the mold surface.

Here in Anchorage Alaska we have a customer making Downhill Snow Ski’s. He has manufactured a couple sets now and has had good success with Pro-Glass Epoxy Resin systems. He is in the process of getting a Business License. He is planning on making many more sets in the future. Here is some pictures of the handmade Downhill Snow Ski.

when the customer called saying he wanted to flood a concrete table top that he built. I wanted to be a part of it. I have flooded a few tables but never concrete.

Initiator Presentation 07/21/2012

Initiators, frequently referred to as catalysts, start the gelling process. Initiator is mixed into promoted resins immediately prior to use or mechanically are injected by spray gun. When practical it is best to pour additives into the vortex while mixing so that they do not cling

Hello all: One of our customer’s here in anchorage built this trailer in his garage. DJ and I helped with product and advice on how to proceed with the build. The trailer has 1/4” Canacore for the top, 2” Styrofoam sides and door all laminate is 6oz cloth and 1300 epoxy. Wooden hard points for all the attachment points. A solar powered vent system. Doug is going to head to California down the Alcan highway. Sleeping when he needs to in his trailer. Good Luck Doug and good job. Not bad for someone who hasn’t ever done fiber-glass before.
