Since 2002 Fiberwerx has been a leader in Custom Manufacturing. As an OEM supplier to
Travelaire Canada among others we have produced parts for RV’s, Water slide parks,
Dairy Products, Aircraft Parts, Oilfield and Industrial components

With Open Mold Processing, parts are created by applying gelcoat, resin and fiberglass roving or
chopped strand matt to the mold in our specially designed lamination areas. Using the latest in
application equipment, quality materials and highly trained staff, open molding offers good quality
parts at economical pricing.
Fiberglass material and resin are applied either by hand layup (using fabric cut from rolls) or by
using a chopper
gun , where fiberglass roving is cut into small strands and “sprayed” onto the mold surface with
resin and catalyst
Typically Open Processing is used for parts were thickness tolerances are not critical. Ideal for
larger parts with smaller production runs.
Vacuum Molds are made with a “wide” flange to accomodate the one of the various bagging
methods. The vacuum bag can be a disposable film that is good for one use only, or it can be
made with silicone or latex for mulitiple use. While all three are similar in techniques, they are
quite different in the actual process.
While not quite as accurate with regards to thickness tolerance compared to RTM Lite, it offers
benefits over Open Molding. It is more expensive than open molding (fabric cost and bagging
costs), but the part consistency is better and there are no VOC’s emitted during the process, thus
making a lighter and stronger part.
Similar to Vacuum Infusion, RTM Lite molds use a wide flange to accommodate vacuum channels
and injection ports. Unlike Vacuum Bagging, RTM Lite uses two hard shell molds. By doing this
there is better control on part thickness and overall consistency. Like Vacuum Bagging, all harmful
emmissions are trapped within the part as it cures. This not only allows for a better cure and a
stronger part but is also better for the environment and workplace.
RTM Lite is better for suited for smaller parts requiring tighter tolerances. It is also best suited for
higher numbers of production runs.
Conceptual Design, Master & Mold Making
We can help you design a 3 dimensional concept of your idea for production as well as being able to create the
master in various substrates using our 5 axis CNC mill. Those masters can then be used to create the molds for the
various production methods.
Mobile Manufacturing SAGD Sumps and Trenchs
Fiberwerx has developed a “Manufacfured in Place” dual containment system with a monitorable interstitial space
compliant with AER regulations. First installed at Devon Energy’s Jackfish One facility, the system has been
improved upon and since installed at MEG Energy Chrisitna Lake SAGD and Husky Sunrise.
Fiberwerx has also the capability to repair and rebuild frp tanks onsite with the most recent being a 30’tall 14’
diameter tank for Osum energy. All of our fiberglass techs are trained and hold certificates in H2S, Confined
Space, Whmis, necessary to allow entry onto most industrial and oilfield sites.
