Custom fiberglass shell, whether for industrial equipment or home decor, require a certain amount of expertise and skill. Below, we will detail the steps and precautions for customizing FRP housing.
First, determine the requirements. Determine the size, shape, and purpose of the fiberglass shell you need to customize. Consider the environment in which it will be used, as well as the pressure, weight and other factors it will need to withstand. This will help you determine the thickness and strength of the material you need.
Secondly, choose the right material. FRP is composed of glass fiber and organic resin, which has the advantages of light weight, high strength and anti-corrosion. Select the right resin and fiber type according to your needs to ensure the durability and performance of the housing.
Next, design the shell shape. Design the shape and structure of the shell using CAD software or manual drawing. Pay attention to the details, such as connection mode, opening position, etc., and ensure that the design meets the actual needs and is safe to use.
Then, make a mold. Make the mold of the shell according to the design drawing to ensure accurate size and smooth surface. The quality of the mold directly affects the forming effect of the shell.
Next, the FRP material is prepared and poured. Mix the glass fiber and the organic resin in a certain proportion, stir well and pour into the mold. Make sure the material is fully filled and no bubbles are formed. Pay attention to safety during the pouring process to prevent resin spatter.
Finally, demoulding and post-processing. After the resin has cured, carefully remove the shell from the mold. The shell is polished, trimmed and colored to improve the appearance.
