Clean and apply waxes to mold surfaces to facilitate assembly and removal of laminated parts. Apply gelcoat to mold surfaces prior to placement of fiberglass mats, repeating layers until products have the desired thicknesses. Bond core material to decks and other structures using resin-saturated fiberglass. Mask off mold areas which are not to be laminated, using cellophane, wax paper, masking tape, or special sprays containing mold-release substances. Mix catalysts into resins, and saturate cloth and mats with mixtures, using brushes. Pat or press layers of saturated mat or cloth into place on molds, using brushes or hands, and smooth out wrinkles and air bubbles with hands or squeegees. Release air bubbles and smooth seams, using rollers. Repair or modify damaged or defective glass-fiber parts, checking thicknesses, densities, and contours to ensure a close fit after repair. Select precut fiberglass mats, cloth, and core materials as required by projects being assembled. Spay resin onto prepared molds using pneumatic spray gun. Trim cured materials by sawing them with diamond-impregnated cutoff wheels. Trim excess materials from molds, using hand shears or trimming knives if required.
