One application is for the construction of fibreglass components to build cooling towers used in large buildings and shopping centres. Another is for building sailing boats and pontoons.
Some of the components can be unique and only one piece required, so to keep costs down a simplified mould making process is required.
With this simplified construction process, moulds can be made very economically, and changed very quickly and easily.
Kikusui 101 Paper Tape is used around corners and over joins to enable the gelcoat and fibreglass components to release easily.
