Essential Fiberglass supplies

fibreglass suppliesUsing a fibreglass resin isn’t intimidating if you have the right fibreglass supplies! With straightforward information and instruction, anyone can find themselves using the material and creating interesting projects. These are the essential fibreglass supplies you’ll need if you decide you’d like to start working with fibreglass.

 

Tools for Compounds

Fiberglass begins as a liquid, also known as a resin when the resin is combined with a hardener; the liquid is then extruded through tiny little holes, which turn it into thin strands of threads. These threads are coated with a chemical solution and bundled together to form rovings, or long bundles of fibre. This is what creates your fibreglass. So in order to create the compound that results in fibreglass, you’ll need a resin and a hardener.

 

Creative Moulds

Use pliable materials to create the moulds for the shapes you’d like for your fibreglass project. For more organic shapes use Styrofoam, or other materials that move easily. For geometric shapes, opt for firm materials such as wood or cardboard. Whatever material you choose, cover it with wax paper, and use wax to seal and attach all joints of the shape. Learn more techniques and tips such as this by contacting one of our customer service representatives who would love to guide you on cultivating your new hobby.
