Durability and more Info
Lubrication of Moulds
All moulds should be lubricated with mould oil for easy release. Please contact Roy Bark at Technilube for advice.
Steel Moulds : Are virtually indestructible. Most are manufactured from 3mm steel plates.
Fiberglass Moulds : Need a little bit more care. If a mould falls it can damage the gelcoat layer. They are easily repaired though. Usually a fiberglass patch on the outside and a good smearing of body filler on the inside which is then sanded down.
Polyurethane Moulds : We have been using the same supplier for 12 years. There are cheaper polyurethanes available on the market, however we will not lower our standard. Our moulds last an average of 8-12 years. Polyurethane moulds can be bent, twisted and generally manhandled without damage.
