This standard 12 oz double Bias fiberglass cloth made by Vectorply is an E-BX 1200-10 (+/-45deg) with a total weight of 12.54 oz/sq.yd (425 g/sq.m). This high quality biaxial fiberglass cloth provides added strength with less additional weight than thicker 17 oz Biaxial glass.
This mid-weight fiberglass cloth is ideal for adding strength with minimal weight, allowing for multiple layers.
The weave is retained by a thin polyester stitching which holds the perpendicular 45 deg tows into place without affecting structural integrity.
This 12 oz cloth impregnates easily and is excellent for small to medium size glassing jobs which focus on strengthening a surface while adding minimal weight. Experience fantastic results while used during wet lay-up, vacuum bagging, or infusion.
This cloth is sold by the yard or roll (196 yd) and is 50" wide.

Used to reinforce wood drift boat bottom. Easy to work with, outcome better than expected. Used 2 layers on 15' boat with Total Boat 2:1 epoxy, super strong.

Great product, best to use a wide masking tape centered at cut locations, minimizes unraveling and fraying. It does suck up the resin so be prepared when you mix.

I really like this material; it forms to various conures and looks great.

Replacing transom in fiberglass boat

I bought 20 yards of this glass to cover the deck of a sailboat I am building. The cloth has multiple "miswoven" areas, areas that one or two fibers are missing. Not likely to effect the overall strength of the deck but makes additional work filling the voids . Jamestown shipped promptly and was well packaged as usual!

So this vectorply glass is very thick and hard to infuse the resin into. This glass also distorts very easily, careful when you lay it out. Make sure you are using the resin at temperature that make it as thin as possible, that will make it's absorption into the cloth much easier. I would be careful to use a medium to slow setting epoxy or resin.
