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.

    Great product and service.
    By Old man Rick from Central Jersey

    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!

    Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

    By Larry from Glenburn, Maine

    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

    Good thick glass
    By Kate from Dublin, VA

    Verified Purchase

    We used this product with 5:1 epoxy to replace the core in a fuel locker cover. It is a very thick glass and worked well. It does require a whole lot of epoxy to fully wet it. Easy to cut and work with.

    Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

    Not for all
    By 17 ft whaler from San Jose CA

    Verified Purchase

    Had a hard time to laminate areas with tight bends and difficult to sand smooth. There is a heavy single strand running in 1 direction that does not want to bend or smooth out. Chopped stand mat follows curves much better and sands better but not sure which would be stronger. I think this would be god for flat things not curves.

    My standard go to fabric
    By BullHippo from Ozark, Al

    Verified Purchase

    Universal use for most applications, for the average repair this is great. Some say it is hard to Wet out ? Not so! There is a degree of technique with anything you use. You can Wet the chopped side lightly then flip it over and Wet the top a little heavy then put the next layer on it , or you can Wet the surface a little heavy and lay the fabric on it , let it absorb into it a few mins then add resin as needed . Once you start the build up and the Wet out begins between layers it is much easier to maintain. Once you get some experience with it, it is a joy to use. Peel ply makes the finished product very nice, get a nice roller and SLOWLY toll out the air and excess resin, you will be very happy with the result.
