Formula Gel-Coat Molds

After the splitting of the Formula Fiberglass negative mold, positive gel coat molds are formed using a multi-coating process. First, a degreasing compound is applied in addition to a wax coat. The Formula designers then apply a black gel coat, which is premixed with a hardener in order for the positive gel-coat layer to cure.
