Spray up is a traditional open-mold process in which chopped fiber and thermoset resin is sprayed on to a mold, consolidated and then cured. This process dominated composites for many years, but is gradually being replaced by closed-mold processes like RTM.
A proven alternative to open molding of big parts.
