From little boats to fibreglass truck bins
Working with fibreglass on boats has led to some diversification and experimentation for Max.
In a back shed is the construction of a giant fibreglass mould for the manufacture of bulk transport bins. Max has been experimenting with special resins that can stand 180°C–200°C.
Twelve layers of fibreglass cloth are put on under a vacuum that sucks in the resin. “Using fibreglass on the boats has led to some expansion. It’s a big jump but pretty interesting,” says Max.
