How Do You Make A Fiberglass Panel?
Fiberglass panels are made from layers of fiberglass mat that’s saturated with a fiberglass resin. The resin is a thick liquid fiberglass that requires a catalyst in order to become a solid. Fiberglass panels are very strong and durable, and can be made to any size and thickness. The more layers of fiberglass mat that is used the thicker and stronger the panel will be. All fiberglass materials can be found at your local marine supply store. Buy a flat, seamless table that is at least 4 inches bigger than the panel on all four sides. Spray the face of the table with a can of industrial strength spray glue. Before the glue dries, cover the surface of the table with a sheet of mylar plastic. Lay the mylar so it’s flat and has no creases or bubbles. Let the glue dry. Apply a layer of boat wax with the foam applicator. Let the wax dry, and wipe away the excess wax with a clean rag. Cut the fiberglass mat 2 inches bigger than the finished panel’s dimensions on all four sides using a razor kn
