Fiberglass Cloth - 17 oz Biaxial 3/4 oz Mat Back

Fiberglass Biaxial Cloth is a #1708 E-glass Biaxial (+/-45 degree) Cloth with 3/4 oz mat backing. The fiberglass tows are held together by light nylon stitching which do not affect the structural integrety of the cloth.

The flat non-crimped fibers yield reduced print-thru and higher stiffness than other woven fabrics

The mat backing adds extra thickness and makes for a smoother finished product when applied over scratches and dents. This cloth is ideal for repairs, tabbing, and reinforcing.

        Quality fiberglass mat. I used this product when I re-cored floor hatches. I used it in conjuction with TotalBoat epoxy and balsa core. This was my first time recoring hatches and my first time using biaxial cloth. It is a bit difficult to fully wet the cloth; you have to spend some time working the resin into the cloth. This was not an issue on a horizontal surface, but might be difficult on a vertical surface. That said - My hatches are now rock solid. After re-coring two rotted hatches, I used this mat to add another layer on a floor hatch that had IMO too much flex - it is now rock solid too.

                i've fixed three transoms on glasrtron boats now and this is the best product i have used. it wets well but you need to make sure that the resin is at a warm temperature. i had the resin in the garage and it was a little thick at first. the flat roller and corner roller work great when forming. for the beginners, try to wet the structure and both sides of cloth before you lay it in. of coarse i mean this when you use it on a vertical not horizontal. good luck!
                jamestown was the best price for all the materials i purchased. resin, rollers, fiberglass(cloth, mat) and don't forget the pumps.

                  This stuff is great. Has a cloth backing which adds to the structure when applied with epoxy and dried. Lots of strength.

                  I like to work with it and how it adheres and hardens.

                    I used it as a reinforcing laminate layer in a kayak paddle I made.
