As one of the most cost-effective materials in the sculpture, fiberglass statue sculpture technology can meet any needs without the limitation of shape requirements, and also has good corrosion resistance, so it has become the preferred material for shopping malls. Next, we will introduce the detailed process of fiberglass sculpture.
To understand the process of fiberglass statue sculpture, we should first understand the definition and characteristics of fiberglass. fiberglass statue is a composite material that combines the hardness of glass and the hardness of fiberglass. fiberglass process originated in the United States.
Fiberglass reinforced plastic (FRP), also known as Fiberglass, is generally referred to as the use of glass fiber reinforced unsaturated polyester, epoxy resin, and phenolic resin matrix. Reinforced plastics, which use glass fiber or its products as reinforcement materials, are called glass fiber reinforced plastics, or glass fiber reinforced plastics, which are different from toughened glass.
Due to the different types of resin used, there are differences among polyester fiberglass, epoxy fiberglass, and phenolic fiberglass. Light and hard, non-conductive, stable performance, high mechanical strength, less recycling, corrosion resistance. It can replace steel to manufacture machine parts, automobiles, ship hulls, etc.
Detailed Description of fiberglass Sculpture Technology
The material characteristics of fiber-reinforced materials lead to the following basic forming processes: hand pasting, pultrusion, winding, and molding.
In the production of fiberglass sculpture, the most commonly used method is hand paste forming.
The Principle of Hand Paste Forming in fiberglass Sculpture Technology
The hand paste forming process of fiberglass sculpture, also known as contact forming, is one of the earliest and most widely used forming methods in the production of resin matrix composites. The hand paste forming a process of fiberglass sculpture is a process of making fiberglass sculpture by using resin mixed with curing agent as the matrix, glass fiber, and its fabric as reinforcing the material, and hand laying on the sculpture mold coated with demoulding agent to bond the two together.
Unsaturated polyester resins or epoxy resins are usually used as matrix resins, and alkali-free or medium-alkali glass fibers and their fabrics are usually used as reinforcing materials. In the hand pasting process of fiberglass sculpture, mechanical equipment is less used. It is suitable for the production of many kinds and small batches of sculpture products and is not limited by the type and shape of the sculpture.
