The first step: design and plastic mold, excellent sculpture needs to have a good design foundation, FRP sculpture process characteristics.FRP process forming beautiful streamlined decoration, can highlight the modern and temporal sense of the work, in the design can first use arc and streamline. In addition, because FRP has the advantage of light weight and high strength, it can make works with strong and small supporting area.
Sometimes the FRP sculpture needs to paint the rubber coat surface, because the rubber coat has self-leveling, at the same time curing under the action of external tension, the rubber coating layer has a certain leveling effect, this situation is not suitable for the performance of meticulous texture. These should be given consideration in the design. Fiberglass sculpture can be made of mud to make the original mold, ordinary plastic mold by professionals.After the completion of the sculpture work, after natural boring, with a certain sense of strength, we can stop the manufacture of FRP sculpture mold.
The second step: FRP manufacturing FRP sculpture manufacturing using hand paste molding method. Before manufacture, according to the shape characteristics of the sculpture, from the point of view of easy molding and demoulding, the mold can also be synthesized into a number of units. According to this, the unit products are formed, and then they are combined into a whole. Finally, the overall disposal and painting of the products, a fiberglass sculpture is completed.
Step 3: mold manufacturing? Mold manufacturing is the key to FRP molding. Gypsum is often used in FRP sculpture mold manufacturing. There is a better FRP sculpture mold manufacturing method, that is, the use of silicone rubber and FRP data to make the mold. Detailed mold manufacturing method is: the preparation of silicone rubber several times on the original mold, silicone rubber layer should be more than 1mm.
After the silicone rubber is crosslinked, the FRP layer with thickness of about 3mm is reformed on the silicone rubber. After FRP curing, cut the whole mold along the divided unit block, and pay attention to cutting the FRP layer and silicone rubber layer at the same time.
In order to make the connecting rib between the unit blocks, the position slot should be set at the connecting rib to ensure that the die of the unit block can be combined as a whole through the connecting rib. After the above work is completed, the FRP unit block is demoulded, then the silicone rubber layer is removed, and the removed silicone rubber block is immediately put back into the FRP unit die. Original mold dedusting silicone rubber layer manufacturing glass steel layer manufacturing die split connecting rib manufacturing die demoulding and assembly die.
Step 4: molding and manufacturing? The glass fiber reinforced plastic sculpture adopts the hand paste molding method, and the molding line should be designed before manufacture. Start from one end of the sculpture, combine a part of the mold after the paste product. Wait for the previous part of the curing before the combination of molds, continue to paste the product.
Under the premise of convenient molding operation, as many mold unit blocks as possible at a time. So repeated, and finally set aside a unit block, the unit block pre-formed glue attached to the overall sculpture. The parts of the FRP sculpture similar to the horns, legs and tails of animals that are difficult to be made by the above methods can be made into a general shape with the corresponding metal materials, and then the FRP can be formed on the metal materials and trimmed by the method of grinding.
An important problem in the molding of FRP sculpture is to strengthen the structure, to strengthen the data, to select the metal profile, and to weld the metal profile into the inner skeleton of the sculpture.
In the molding and manufacturing, the metal skeleton is gradually buried in the sculpture. In order to improve the stiffness and strength of FRP sculpture, increase its service life, and finally through the metal skeleton device FRP sculpture assembly mold filling surface putty laying short cut felt laying square cloth buried skeleton final product demoulding.
Step 5: FRP relief finishing product local defects, pay attention to the production of surface effect. Common surfaces are imitation bronze and imitation bronze. The FRP sculpture has bright color, beautiful lines and beautiful shape. Can be made into imitation gold, copper, stone a variety of effects, showing a distinct sense of the times. Good fiberglass sculpture works should be designed, modeled, molded and processed to ensure the quality of each link can be realized.
