Tips and Tricks

When it comes time for you to sit down and put these fibreglass supplies to use, there are some tips and tricks to keep in mind that will help prevent injury and also save time.

 

Tip 1: Get Lumber Pre-Cut

Often, you can have lumber pre-cut for you at your local home improvement store. By doing this, you will save time and you will not have to measure and cut your own pieces.

 

Tip 2: No Resin on Skin

Do whatever it takes to prevent getting resin on your skin as it is not easy to get off. You can wear gloves, a long sleeve shirt, or whatever else works for you.

 

Tip 3: Ventilation is Important When you are mixing your resin and catalyst, it is vital to your health that you do NOT do it in a closed room. You should always mix these ingredients outdoors or in a well-ventilated area to prevent harm.
