West System Episize Glass Fabric is finished with a special chemical coupling agent based upon amino silane chemistry. The fabric easily bonds with West System epoxy and results in significantly improved peel strength relative to other chemical finishing systems.
Tests indicate an improvement in flexural modulus and tensile strength, as well as compressive load-carrying ability when compared with other fabrics treated primarily for bonding with polyester resins.
Episize Glass Fabric is ideal for both building composite laminates and repairing fiberglass structures. It can be painted or varnished over.
The fabric is wound on rigid tubes and shipped in tube containers.
