Default fiberglass baffle covering

For my line array I'm thinking of using some asian screen panels. As a way of preserving the surface I was thinking of laminating it with a thin layer of fiberglass (like you might find on a wood bow). Is there a recomended clear adhesive for this?

Hi,

Not really a recommendation, but I've seen fibreglass suppliers list a resin that's suitable for making paper weights ( 1/2 spheres of clear resin with an object inside to give interest. It sets clear so may be good for your cause.

Rob.

UK company that stocks it:

Thanks Rob, looks like that just might work.

I have zero experience with casting fiberglass. It seems like I may just be able to put the panels flat, raise a little wall around the edge, and pour the stuff on. Has anyone actually used this stuff?

what you're looking for is casting resin. This is also used to make fancy table tops with objects embedded.
