For cold press moulding the back of the mould should be filled with a material capable of withstanding continuous loading in a press. One such material is concrete, although a filled resin system may also be used. Here, after the final layer of glass reinforcement has been applied to the mould, a further layer of resin is applied at a rate of about 400 g/m 2 , into which is sprinkled a layer of broken stone chips. After the resin has been fully cured the back of the mould is filled with the concrete or resin mix which bonds around these stone chips.

With simple mouldings with flat areas or those with surfaces curved in only one direction, a relatively flat glossy surface can be obtained by covering the wet laminate with a layer of Cellophane or Melinex sheeting and rolling to ensure that all air bubbles are displaced towards the edge of the mOUlding. A topcoat of pigmented resin is often applied to the partially cured laminate to serve as additional protection to the glass mat, provide a decorative finish, balance up the gelcoat and, to some extent, give a smoother finish.

For mouldings up to about 5 mm in thickness, the pinching area should be sufficient to compress two layers of glass mat in a gap of 0·4-0·5 mrn. For thicker mouldings the pinching area should accommodate three or four mat thicknesses. In addition, it is useful to incorporate a drainage channel into which surplus resin can drain. An example of such a design is shown in Fig. 3. When not in use, moulds should be stored flat to prevent distortion and protected from dust and moisture. In use, continuous scrutiny is necessary so that any imperfections which occur can be immediately rectified.
