Hand Lay-up & Spray-up

Hand Lay-up & Spray-up

Hand lay-up is the most common and least expensive open-molding method because it requires the least amount of equipment. Fiber reinforcements are placed by hand in a mold and resin is applied with a brush or roller. This process is used to make both large and small items, including boats, storage tanks, tubs and showers.
Spray-up, or chopping, is an open mold method similar to hand lay-up in its suitability for making boats, tanks, transportation components, and tub/shower units in a large variety of shapes and sizes.
