We use resin infusion to build our custom sport fishing yachts. Resin infusion is a process where the voids in a porous material are filled with a liquid resin. When the resin solidifies, the solid resin matrix binds the assembly of materials into a unified rigid composite. Typical materials are closed cell foams, fiber glass, balsa wood, and honeycomb.
A key part of the process is the evacuation, or removal, of the air from the porous material prior to admitting the resin. The air needs to be removed from the porous material to allow the resin to take its place. In its simplest form the process can be broken down into the following stages: Air Removal, Injecting of Resin, Maintaining Vacuum During Cure.
CORE CELL FOAM
Core-Cell is the first structural foam designed specifically for the marine industry, we use a sandwich construction process in which we infuse fiberglass on either side of every piece of core to produce the most structurally sound sport fishing yachts.
Core-Cell foam has better handling and machining characteristics, it can also be produced in different densities for different sections of the boat to add strength.
Core-Cell is a closed cell foam that adds safety to ocean going vessels because it only absorbs 1% of its weight in water over its lifetime, meaning your boat stays light.
