Fiberglass sculpture is a common urban sculpture. Fiberglass has the characteristics of resistance to weak corrosive media such as air, steam and water and chemical etching media such as acid, alkali, and salt. Because of the many advantages of Fiberglass sculpture, many urban sculptures are made of Fiberglass.
1. Chemical properties: Chemical corrosion resistance and electrochemical corrosion resistance are the best in steel, second only to titanium alloy.
2. Physical properties: heat resistance, high-temperature resistance, low-temperature resistance, and even ultra-low temperature resistance.
3. Mechanical properties: According to different types of Fiberglass, the mechanical properties are different. Martensitic Fiberglass has high strength and hardness and is suitable for manufacturing parts that are both corrosion resistant and require high strength and high wear resistance, such as turbine shafts. Fiberglass cutters, Fiberglass bearings, etc., austenitic Fiberglass has good plasticity and low strength, but corrosion resistance is the best in Fiberglass. It is suitable for occasions requiring very high corrosion resistance and low mechanical properties, such as chemical plants and fertilizers. Plant materials, sulfuric acid, hydrochloric acid manufacturers of equipment, etc., of course, can also be used in submarines and other military industries, ferritic Fiberglass mechanical properties are moderate, the strength is not high, but resistant to oxidation, suitable for a variety of industrial furnace parts.
4. Process performance: Austenitic Fiberglass has the best process performance. Because of its good plasticity, it can be processed into various profiles such as plates and tubes. It is suitable for pressure processing. Martensitic Fiberglass has poor hardness due to its high hardness.
Fiberglass sculptures should be cleaned regularly and placed in a dry environment to protect them. It is best to wear gloves when holding them to prevent salt corrosion in the sweat on your hands. If the dirt on the Fiberglass sculpture is too heavy, first blow it with a cold air blower. Then use a straw brush to clean, and finally use a soft brush to finish. Never use a metal polish, water, or any other solvent. That will make the bronzes fade. Fiberglass sculpture gap, we can wet the cotton ball with saliva and rub it, rubbing it from the beginning to the end along the crack to avoid missing. Once a year, the thin layer of microcrystalline wax is given to the bronze. It is the kind of colorless wax.
