    In this case thats really not true ! i worked with laminates a lot before, but as soon as you start to make molds it somehow really goes scifi :/ so the last weeks i spend just doing trial and error...

    I like this: a professional approach, good tools. I will monitor progress and to learn if the author does not mind.

    I'm not an expert but I'll give it a try :)

    What you have there is a positive mold (plug) that you laminate with fiberglass to make a negative mold (tool).

    Materials used (starting from the plug or tool surface):
    - Release agent. Wax and/or polyvinyl alcohol, you're using PVA.
    - Gelcoat. Optional. You're not using this. It's a durable coating for the part or mold. It can be sanded/painted/repaired etc.
    - Laminate CF/FG, light. Epoxy or polyester resin
    - Laminate CF/FG, structural. Epoxy or polyester resin.
    - Release film, peel ply. In the same or different layer.
    - Bleeder fabric. Takes all the excess resin in itself.
    - Breather fabric. Usually the same material as bleeder.
    - Vacuum bag.

    Laminate CF/FG materials are available as cloth, mat, tape, prepreg, biaxial, oh my :)

    Nice build btw. I like the design. :thumb:

    I actually do use Gelcoat, in this special instance its just my usual Epox with some thyxo mixed into it.

    An theres one coat u forgot, the "coupling" coat between the very first layer of fibres and the rough structural layers afterwards, i used again the normal epox thickened with thyxo and wool

    Nope, I didn't forgot anything. It's a list of materials used for a basic laminate to open up terminology as you requested. Short descriptions are there for everyone else reading and because english is not my first language, the description should tell if I got the term wrong and people can correct me.

    Explaining the process, when and why you do things is your turf. It gets interesting fast and that's why I'm following the build too :) Keep it up :rock:

    New to these forums and this is one of the very first project logs I happen to click in to. Either I was blessed with amazing fortune and clicked on one of the best damned designs on here, or this forum is full of more talent than I'd figured.

    Many things to aim towards! Also Sub'd!
