Fiberglass sculpture is the most widely used sculpture today, and the characteristics of Fiberglass sculpture are also very obvious. Fiberglass sculpture is not only a good artistic expression, but it is also very suitable as a carrier of art and a good creative partner for artists. Moreover, its low cost is even more popular. Today, Bosong Sculpture Factory will introduce the characteristics of Fiberglass sculpture.
We often see some bronze sculpture art products in some public places. In fact, many of these sculptures are not real copper sculpture products, but glass steel sculpture products, but they look like copper sculptures after coloring.
Fiberglass is a composite material composed of synthetic resin as the base material and glass fiber and its products as the reinforcing material. Fiberglass sculpture is a finished type of sculpture, which has the characteristics of lightweight, corrosion resistance, and relatively low cost. Also known as Fiberglass, the scientific name is fiber reinforced plastic, and the domestic habit is called Fiberglass.
As we all know, steel is very hard and not brittle, and also has the characteristics of high-temperature resistance; glass is hard and brittle, has good transparency and high temperature and corrosion resistance. Smart people are beginning to imagine that if they can produce a glass that has both the hardness, high-temperature resistance and corrosion resistance of the glass, but also has the characteristics of hardness and breakage like steel, then this material will certainly be of great use. specialty.
Everyone knows that cement blocks can withstand pressure and steel can withstand tension. Steel is used as the bones and cement and sand as the muscles. Let them solidify together, complement each other, and become extremely strong-this is reinforced concrete.
In the same way, people have melted the glass and drawn it into glass fibers as thin as a tenth of the hair diameter after numerous research experiments. The original hard and brittle glass has become soft and tensile glass fiber. Its tensile strength can be increased by more than ten times.
Fiberglass is used for muscles and bones, and synthetic resins (phenolic plastics, epoxy resins, and polyester resins) are used for muscles. They are made into one body, and the material has a tensile strength comparable to that of steel—hence the name Fiberglass.
Before making the finished product of Fiberglass sculpture, first, use the specific clay-plastic material to make the product to be produced. After the clay-plastic draft is completed, turn the gypsum outer mold, and then the Fiberglass (that is, the combination of resin and glass cloth) Paint inside the outer mold. After it is dry, open the outer mold and go through the mold clamping process to obtain the finished product of Fiberglass sculpture. However, Fiberglass sculptures are exposed to the sun and wind erosion outdoors, and generally, have the disadvantages of deformation and fragility after more than five years.
