Fibreglass and Resin

Item Notes:

Surface Tissue

Fibreglass tissue is a non woven felt made of randomly oriented glass fibres distributed in a special binder by a wet-lay process. This material is used in composite surface applications. It adds smoothness, lustre, and cleanliness of colour to the surface - and it improves water resistance and durability of the product.

Chopped Strand Matt

Chopped strand mat is made from fibreglass chopped strands bonded with powder binder. Chopped strand mat is used primarily for hand lay up process, filament winding process and press moulding of FRP products. Typical products include bathroom accessories, pipe, building material, automobile, furniture and other FRP products. where strength is required.  Good drape-ability, wet out and cost effective. As a general rule estimate the resin/reinforcement ratio at 1.5-2 times by weight.

Polyester Resin (General Purpose)

Polyester resins are the most commonly used matrix in the marine and composite industry. These resins are styrene-based, flammable and catalyzed when combined with Methyl Ethyl Ketone Peroxide (MEKP). When working with these resins in large projects it is advised to use gloves and a chemical respirator to protect yourself from the vapours. These resins can be used with any type of fibreglass, carbon fibre or kevlar, as well as used over urethane foam and other sandwich core materials. These resins tend to be fairly rigid when cured and also more brittle than epoxy resins. Mixed by volume 1-2% with MEKP Catalyst.

Casting Resin

A diamond clear embedding resin. Liquid resin which will not discolour. Cured resin is rock hard, resists chipping, breaking, cracking, and crazing. Can be used with colour dyes for sparkling translucent castings. Used to embed monograms, butterflies, shells, zoological specimens, botanical and anatomical samples . Use with MEKP Catalyst. Casting Resin is a clear embedding resin, NOT suitable as a surface coating nor to be used as a gap filler in wood. Mixed by volume 1-2% with MEKP Catalyst.

White Polyester Gelcoat

Gelcoat is a polyester coating that is applied to the mould surface and becomes an integral part of the finished product. Use to make fiberglass reinforced plastic parts and for repairs to existing gel coated parts. White & Neutral Gelcoat dries to a hard sandable finish. Mixed by volume 1-2% with MEKP Catalyst. Does not contain wax. Neutral is better with coloring agents. White is more opaque with coloring agents. Gelcoat is the bottom coating of choice for most trailerable racing sailboats and powerboats. Gelcoat is easy to apply, and gelcoat application coats smooth and sleek. Coloured Gelcoat is available upon request (minimum of 1kg) and ordered in when prepaid.

R180 Epoxy Resin System

The ES180 laminating systems were developed for the production of articles where thin film cure is of particular importance that the manufacturer can be positive that he has a part built to the maximum properties in a wide range of working conditions. Particular emphasis was placed on the overall strength and toughness of the cured system. The high mechanical properties combine well with its low viscosity, which in turn ensures the user of easy wet out even on the most difficult fabrics. The resin is well suited to
composite laminating and glass over timber situations. The ES180 Epoxy system is suitable for the usual substrates. A complete range of hardeners are available including the “Surf Set curative” which allows an unsaturated polyester resin to be laminated over the epoxy, this gives the best of both worlds, adhesion to difficult substrates and low cost. This system has also been successfully
utilised in the production of low-cost Polystyrene surfboards and also the manufacture of
plugs in the production marine industry. As well as the above ES180 Epoxy System has been further improved to provide a unique colour change system. This Epoxy is a 5:1 resin to hardener ratio.

F904 Performance Adhesive Powder

Use 906 for load bearing adhesive joints and 904 for impact resistant joints.
For critical bonding it is recommended to use our specially formulated adhesives.
As can be seen the filler mix of 1 litre of mixed resin to 1 litre of filler will give desired
properties for each product, this is an approximate guide and should be adjusted by the user to achieve their desired consistency. Fillers should be mixed until full colour development of the filler occurs, F904 will give a blue colour when properly mixed.
