GRP & FRP Fibreglass Moulders Southampton

Composite Mouldings

Fibreglass was first developed in the 1930's and is now referred to as GRP (Glassfibre Reinforced Plastic) or FRP (Fibre Reinforced Plastic). GRP is a composite of a range of materials which can include chopped strand matt; woven rovings; carbon fibre; other exotic fibres; and different kinds of resin.

Resin Infusion

CML use open resin moulding systems using a vacuum to draw the Polyester or Epoxy resin through a fibre material. The fibre is first applied dry into the mould surface and a vacuum bag is laid over it then a pump, with a bleed chamber for excess resin, is used to draw the resin through the cloth.

Resin Transfer Moulding

At CML we use a closed mould resin injection system used in volume production of small to medium sized items. Where both surfaces of the moulding are required to be smooth. Typical applications include vehicle body panels, fairings and high volume requirements like light shades.

Vacuum Bagging

At CML we use open mould systems to consolidate laminates and remove air and volatiles from the laminate structure. Composite laminates fabricated from carbon fibre, pre-pregs, e-glass, expoy and polyester can all be put under vacuum. Typical applications include aerospace, race car and marine structures and moudlings.

3D Modelling

At CML we can use 3D modelling to visualise complex surface geometries and render the model to give a real life visual of the finished article, or accurately gain surface areas and volumes for weight and centre of gravity calculations. We also use it in our turn key products for general arrangements of interiors or systems within a component.
