Reinforced polyester resin operations entail laying reinforcements such as glass fiber in a mold and saturating it with a polyester plastic resin. The resin hardens to form a rigid plastic part, reinforced with the fiberglass. The resin is mixed with a catalyst as it is applied that causes a cross-linking reaction between the resin molecules. The cross-linking reaction causes the resin to harden from a liquid to a solid. Fiberglass boats and fiberglass boat parts, bathtubs, pools and hot tubs are built using this process.
