Whitecap Composites is well equipped to handle custom fabrication projects of an array of scales. Whether you’re looking to modify an existing structure, or are looking to build a one-off project based on architectural drawings, we are here to support you. Experienced carpenters and laminators ensure an efficient and extraordinary build process.
A finished composite part will only reach the level of quality dictated by the mold in which it’s laminated. Consequently it is critical that the mold be of the highest quality. A high quality mold can remain in service for hundreds of laminate cycles before requiring any refinishing or repair. Whitecap Composites’ skilled laminators pride themselves on creating stiff, stable, and highly polished molds, which ultimately ease future part lamination. In addition to new mold manufacturing, Whitecap Composites is also frequently asked to assist in the refinishing of existing molds. In such instances the existing surface is abraded and a new surface applied. We utilize the highest quality vinyl-ester and epoxy finished to ensure maximum durability. This new surface is then polished to a glass like texture, and fully sealed and waxed before being placed back in into production.
