RE: Closed mold fiberglass case studies



Cindy McComas,
 I do not know what is meant, exactly, by "closed moulding".
Does the "SCRIMP" process count?  This is a process used by a few   
fiberglass boat builders in Maine where the liquid mixture of resin and   
hardener is pulled via vacuum through the space between the mold and a   
sheet of plastic.  The result: almost no emissions of vapors from the   
fiberglass curing process and likewise little or no emissions from open   
containers.
Cannot remember what "SCRIMP" stands for, but it is a company's trade   
name, and the only facilities allowed to use this process are those   
facilities that purchase a license from the company.
No information on the company resides in my head, but it is easy to get.
Let me know if you desire more information.

I am looking for case studies/success stories of fiberglass shops that   
use
closed molding so I can fill in a matrix project for the NPPR Workgroup.
Please send any of these case studies to me at:
