Fiberglass Boat Repair, Wooden Yacht Bow Deck, System 3 Silvertip Epoxy
So here's that same Chris Craft bow deck, and we've just put a coat of epoxy with fibreglass cloth on it. We're using this system three laminating resin, and the hardener there, and that's a very good epoxy. It allows the fresh, or the raw plywood to soak up a certain amount of that epoxy, and then wetting the cloth into it, makes the two bond together, form a bit of a watertight seal, or hopefully a watertight seal. And we'll put another coat of the resin on it, and the hardener mixed into it,.
245 10 oz Fiberglass Fabric
Big beam hi I'm Steve from Fibre Glast today we're looking at the 10ounce plain weave fiberglass fabric available on our website this is the most commonly used boat cloth in our fiberglass category and is referred to throughout the industry as style 7500 like all of our fiberglass reinforcement it's made to be used with resin as part of a composite lamination it's an industry favorite for waterproofing and protecting various marine applications like boats and personal watercraft it offers nice handling during fabrication and plain weave construction allows uniform strength in both horizontal.
And vertical directions to increase strength plies should be added at 45 degree angles within the lamination at Fibre Glast we offer this 10ounce in three widths 38 50 and 60inch you'll find each on our website under numbers 245 271 and 247 respectively we also offer woven fiberglass tapes that closely match this fabric all versions of the 10ounce can be used with any of the resins on our site to create fiberglass composites with excellent strength low weight and great cosmetics Fibre Glast takes great measure to ensure that.
Big beam hi I'm Steve from Fibre Glast today we're going to talk about the selection of fiberglass reinforcements that you can find on our website fiberglass is the foundation of the composites industry it's frequently the best overall choice among reinforcements and even materials like metal and wood for making parts that combine excellent strength low weight and great cosmetics when fabricating it's easy to handle sand and machine and conforms to even the most complex shapes it is widely used for all these reasons in fact so much so that it might be difficult to get through your day without touching.
Something that contains fiberglass over time this has led to a common misconception you might hear someone refer to their fiberglass boat or fiberglass bathtub in fact these products are not simply fiberglass but fiberglass composites created using reinforcement along with resin when combined the two bond chemically to form hard composite laminate parts all the fiberglass reinforcements available on our website are made to be used with a resin in this way the selection you'll find at Fibre Glast dot com is unique a complete range of first quality fiberglass reinforcement.
Unmatched by any supplier in the industry and much more than you'll find your local retailer we offer mat and veil tape roving sleeve and chopped fiber we also offer nearly twenty fabrics in weights and weaves suited for everything from mold making and boat repair to highly engineered aerospace applications generally fiberglass is the least expensive among reinforcements making it the best value for the majority of composites but keep in mind that prices will vary widely depending on your selection no matter which selection you make you can count on first quality from.

Sandwich Core Materials
Hi, I'm Steve from Fibre Glast. Today we're taking a look at the Sandwich Core materials available at FibreGlast. This category includes Nomex Honeycomb, EndGrain Balsa, and a selection of foam products. We use the term Sandwich Core because these materials are sandwiched between layers of reinforcement within your part. They are used to build bulk and strength for a part without adding significant weight. Parts made with sandwich core achieve a much higher flexural strength than using skin laminates alone. Sandwich core materials also build thickness into any composite part, which in turn, builds stiffness.
Let's take a closer look at each of our sandwich core categories, beginning with Nomex Honeycomb. Nomex Honeycomb is a sheet of cells, nested together to form panels with much the same look as a crosssection of beehive. It's extremely flexible, and when fully expanded, is almost entirely open space. It offers good impact resistance and is also fire retardant. Among sandwich core, Honeycomb offers the very best strengthforweight ratio. It is used primarily for structural applications in aerospace. EndGrain Balsa is the most widely used sandwich core material. It is constructed using small blocks of wood each bonded in succession to.
A light scrim fabric backing. As a result, it conforms to nearly any simple curve and most gradual compound curves. It offers a high compressive strength due to the density of the wood blocks. Balsa is often selected as a more affordable option compared to honeycomb or vinyl foams. Foams make up the last category of Sandwich Core. All foams at FibreGlast are rigid, closedcell foams, meaning they resist water, gas, and oil. They deliver added strength, stiffness, and insulation for parts, without adding significant weight. Foam is easy to handle, provides excellent flotation, and can.
Be easily carved or shaped. Our foam selections includes sheets of vinyl foam Divinymat flow media mixandpour polyurethane foams and sheets of polyisocyanurate foam. All the Sandwich Core materials at FibreGlast are compatible with epoxy, polyester, and vinyl ester resins, and can be used for most layup techniques, including vacuum bagging and infusion. Because of their combined strength, stiffness and bulk for low weight, they are popular for use with marine applications, like boat hulls, as well as aerospace and structural panels. To get more details on our entire selection of Sandwich Core materials, visit product pages at FibreGlast and watch spotlight tutorials.
Wooden Boat Repair Tips, Meranti Mahogany Marine Plywood Aft Cabin
So here's that same Chris Craft, and what we did here was replace these back walls from the aft cabin. There's the aft cabin in there, and these back two pieces of plywood were all rotted out, and we had to tear out the old one, and put in the new, you can see how. This is a, I think this is called meranti plywood. It's an African mahogany type plywood. and it's a lot of layers, and the difference between marine plywood and regular plywood is there is no voids in marine plywood.
