Whether fiberglass laminating or casting you should work in an ambient temperature around 20ºC, as this ensures that the resin will cure correctly. Resin will not cure adequately below 15ºC, and at temperatures above 30 C, they will cure too quickly! You must not use oil heaters or electric fires (see below), so maintain the temperature with convector heaters, Dimplex radiators, or similar. You will need trestles to support the mould at a comfortable working height for small jobs; of course, you can use a normal workbench or trestle table. For protection cover with polythene, polyester film or brown wrapping paper.
