This triaxial fiberglass cloth is an E-TLX 2200-10 (0, +/-45°) 23.55oz/sq.yd E-Glass made by Vectorply. Triaxial fiberglass combines the benefits of unidirectional and standard +/-45 biaxial fiberglass. The fiber tows run in perpendicular angles to add strength and reduce both torsional and longitudinal flexion and strain. The weave is retained by a thin polyester stitching which holds the tows in place without affecting structural integrity.
Triaxial Fiberglass impregnates easily and is ideal for large glassing jobs focusing on strengthening a surface while adding minimal weight. Experience excellent results when used during wet lay-up, vacuum bagging, or infusion molding.
This cloth is sold by the yard or roll (106 yds) and is 50" wide.

I found this glass mat to be too thick for my purposes. Unfortunately I ordered 6 square yards, way too much. It would be helpful to get a sample cutting before ordering. I had to disassemble the multiple layers of packaging to see what it was like, and now don't believe it could be returned as a result.

I am very pleased with the quality of this fiberglass! I just started a pow surfer business and am excited to do constant business with you! I have a long list of things I'll be buying regularly. Thank you very much:-)

Very strong and thick fiberglass. Only needed one layer. Was a little difficult to work with because of its thickness. However, I am confident in its strength. After initial laying, there is a deep woven pattern that fills easily with filler and thickener. This fabric was applied to 1/4 inch (old) plywood hull with multiple repairs. A thinner glass fabric would be adequate for other applications, but I like how this turned out with only one layer on this refurbish job. I used a lot of epoxy. JD has been uniformly excellent for mail order.

Vector is good glass... more direction the better. 0/90/45 is great stuff in epoxy resin. Vacuum bag it down.

i used this to install a transom on a Mirage River racer tunnel boat. we have literally beat this boat to death in rough water and have not seen any stress or cracking since the repair. I will defiantly be using this again when I install stringers and transom on my Hydrostream Vector.

For the price this is an amazing product. I used it for building skis and it was easy to work with and very stiff when cured. I also loved how wide it came, and how few meters I needed to order to get the amount I needed.
