Signature Pools and Products Fibreglass Manufacturing Process

This weeks post will be focusing on our fibreglass manufacturing process that we use at Signature and will give you a direct insight straight from the manufacturers as to how our products are made.

Resin Transfer Moulding

In resin transfer moulding, pressure and vaccum is used to force resin through dry fabrics in matched mould. Once fully wetted the laminate is cured either at room temperature or in a oven. This process can be used to make the 1m2 double curvature panel, the 1m x 8m sandwich panel and the complex component case studies, and it has been assumed that the higher pressure in resin transfer moulding will allow a higher pressure in resin transfer moulding will allow a higher volume fraction than resin infusion.

Pultrusion

Pultrusion is a continuous process for making constant cross section profiles. FIbres and fabrics are continuously pulled through a resin bath and into a heated shape of the profile. This process can be used to make the 1m x 8m panel case study, modeled with ribs instead of the core material used in other processes.

Compression Moulding

Compression moulding is used for both thermosetting and thermoplastic matrices. Material is placed in the lower cavity of a matched tool, the two halves of the tool are brought together and pressure applied to force the material to fill the cavity. In thermoplastic moulding the material is preheated and placed in a warm mould. By contrast, for thermosetting matrices the material is placed. Into a hot mould and curvature panel and the complex component.

With our base of operations and manufacturing facilities strategically located in the United Arab Emirates, our team can offer a complete solution from concept design right through to completion and supplying products worldwide.
