What is a mold plug?
Similarly, what can I use to make a mold for fiberglass?
Materials used to make the Mold:
- West System 105A Epoxy Resin.
- West System 205A Epoxy Fast Hardener.
- West Systems 300 Epoxy Metering Pumps.
- West Systems 406 Colloial Silica Filler.
- West Systems A423 Graphite Powder.
- CST Style G3733 5.8 oz Fiberglass Cloth.
- Chavant Y2 Clay.
- Coremat Flexible Core.
Also, how are fiberglass molds made? Fiberglass molding is a process in which fiberglass reinforced resin plastics are formed into useful shapes. The process usually involves first making a mold and then using the mold to make the fiberglass component.
Just so, how many layers of fiberglass do you need for a mold?
For example, 9-10 layers of 1.5oz fiberglass mat will give you a mold thickness of around . 38" (which on a small mold is perfectly acceptable). On larger fiberglass molds, it may be more practical to add core materials to bring the mold up to the desired level of stiffness.
How many layers of fiberglass do I need?
Two layers is the absolute minimum, three is better The more prep time between the layers the stronger the finished product will be.
