Fusion Finish Spray | Fiberglass surfaces
To elaborate the refinishing process for fiberglass is easy to bond to, which is what other refinishers want to do. Bond, or glue, a paint onto the old surface. To be honest, that is half the battle correct? I mean the end result that we want is trifold
- surface to bond,
- we want the surface to look great
- and we want the surface to last.
Fusion Finish spray will not do this because fusion finish spray allows me to add a fiberglass resin to the mixture. So when you hire fusion finish to refinish a fiberglass bathtub or surface I am going to etch the old surface, then hand rub fiberglass resin into the abrasions caused by the etching. The end result is that I will also use fiberglass resin additive in the synthetic porcelain so I am integrating the new surface into, not on top of the old surface. The fiberglass resin will allow the new surface to flex and bend with the old surface. Although, you will notice the toughness of the synthetic porcelain strengthens the fiberglass so it has a stiffer, more durable feel. We essentially not only added a new surface, but we also thickened the old surface by about 3 millimeters giving you a better product than what you could buy brand new.
Pictured below is a cracked and worn shower pan. Before and after. The cracks were filled with fiberglass resin so the entire unit then became uniform before I refinished it.
