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.

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,.
Boat Building on the Cape
For me, building a boat is a lot like raising a child. You do the best job you can with the tools you have, and if you work diligently, everything works out. We jut out in the North Atlantic Ocean about 30 miles. So, boats played a big role in everything that people have done here on Cape Cod throughout history. So it's been important to us economically and it's also a source of pride. We, all of us, whether we're directly involved, as I am in the boat business or not, are on.
This unusual, even unique place with some unusual skills and craftsman, which is something you can't say in other parts of the country. One of the great things about boat building is that we're able to draw upon proven designs and proven techniques from our own boating experiences and incorporate that into the boats that we're building today. Our boats are special, they're unique, they're handcrafted. And they have a soul. They're built by our team, our crew with extreme care and a lot of love. The end result is, of course, to satisfy the client. Fortunately, for I think anybody who.
Is in the business of naval architecture there is a tremendous amount of satisfaction for one's self if the boat looks good, goes fast and gets the owner the places he always dreamed of going. My wife always kids me. To me, the best perfume would be something that smelled like sanded old varnish. There are smells, tarred marline, sanded varnish, the smell of fresh paint when you walk into the shop after something has been painted. The cedar dust in the air, the smell of mahogany, the black stain that comes on your hand from working with honduras mahogany.

Home Improvements Repairs How to Use Epoxy
Hi I'm Tim Gipson and I'm going to talk to you about how to use epoxy. Now most epoxies come in two parts so you'll have the one part and you'll have the other part what we call a hardener. Now epoxies are very good when you need a good solid bond, they can be used to bond glass, metal, ceramic or wood or multiple types of surfaces. So when you are getting ready to use epoxy what you want to do is you want to take both parts and using a paper.
Plate or something like this and then having something to stir it with such as this plastic knife or a popsickle stick or a tongue depressor works very good. Whatever you use you want to use disposable items because once you have mixed and used all of your epoxy you are going to have to throw away what you have used, it is not going to be usable again so to do this you can put a bead on your plate of the epoxy and then put a bead of the hardener.
So once we have these equal amounts out there now what we do is we just mix these together. So when we have a gray uniform color that is a good indication that we have mixed it up properly. Now you have different types of epoxy and how quickly it will set up so one thing you want to look at the directions and look at how much work time that you have with your epoxy but once you have it mixed up then you can take whatever you are hearing.
And you can evenly spread it and then you want to put even pressure so whenever you are using epoxy make sure that you use even pressure and whatever squeeze out you have can simply be cleaned up with a paper towel around the edges. Now epoxy dries extremely hard so whatever excess you have you want to make sure you try to get that out before it hardens so once you have that you can put your parts together and let that dry and in just a very few minutes it will dry to a very strong and hard bond. I'm Tim Gipson and that's.
