There are several different processing methods, the most common being hand laying and spray laying. Hand laying is the simplest method of processing. A form of, for example, wood, polyester or concrete is lined with fiberglass mats which are then manually applied to polyester or epoxy added hardener. This is repeated until the desired material thickness is achieved.
