Wax paper improvement


Recommended Posts

we did layups on wax paper on the bench for a long time until our tech advisor frowned. He just didn't like the idea of possible wax contamination. We also didn't like the way the wax paper sort of disolves if left too long.


We bought a roll of butcher freezer wrap. No wax, a very thin plastic coating on one side, cuts like paper.


18" wide, 1100 feet or yards per roll (can't remember which) $35.


It's great for layups, templates, patterns etc. If you make a mistake and use it plastic side down instead of up, it still works fine, just takes a little more epoxy to wet out, of course we tested this out on purpose.


When making tapes, you can prefold the centerline to make it easier to place.

Drawing the layout shape and writing the glass schedule helps at the cutting table and some times putting the weave direction on the paper is not a bad idea.


maker wood dust and shavings - foam and fiberglass dust and one day a cozy will pop out, enjoying the build
