Product Details

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.

    The best
    By G from Connecticut

    This is superior material, thoroughly recommend it. The size I needed was temporarily out of stock a month or two ago, so I ordered some through Amazon that was described the same way - 1708 biaxial fiberglass cloth. But apparently quality varies, and the Amazon stuff was simply awful in comparison with the cloth I've previously bought from Jamestown. I won't make that mistake again.

    Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

    Great for the boat repairs I was making. Delivery was fast and it was packaged well. The best part was that the mat came rolled and not folded!

    By Larry from Glenburn, Maine

    Verified Purchase

    Nothing bad to say about this product, worked perfectly. Wets out well and stays in place. Used this to reinforce port side of Mutineer sailboat hull where hull was very soft due to storm damage and badly done previous repair.

    Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

    Great product for strengthening a corner
    By Rangerick from Colorado

    Verified Purchase

    I needed a strong fiberglass to strengthen a corner of my sailboat. After adhering a triangular piece of mahogany in the corner using thickened epoxy, I used the biaxial fiberglass over the top to finish it off. Electric scissors' worked better to cut this material than manual scissors for some reason.

    Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend
