Fiberglass/ kevlar repair
Posted by: riceguy on Sep-05-11 12:32 PM (EST)
Bubbles (poorly filled areas) are one of the defects home garage repairs will fight. It is easy to take a small item as a paddle which has been glassed, insert it in a plastic bag and pull a vacuum with a vacuum cleaner to fill voids. (Kevlar fabric is harder to wet.) Yes there can be wrinkles generated but my feel is I have wanted to sand the cured to polish the surface whether bagging the item or doing it atmospheric. Polystyrene resin isn't supposed to have constant contact with water. Epoxie or marine paint makes a safe top coat.
