What is Open Molding?
Open molding and hand lay-up are the most common and widely used methods of manufacturing fiber reinforced polymer composites. In open molding, a one-sided mold is used where the cosmetic surface is directly against the mold, and the structural FRP is built up behind the cosmetic surface.
With open molding, products are produced from the exterior to the interior of the part.
