Fiberglass cloth tape is made of twisted strands of fiberglass that are woven at right angles to one another. Cloth has the highest glass-to-resin ratio and strength of all fiberglass materials.
Fiberglass tape is usually a narrow, cloth strip with woven edges that prevent unraveling. Use this tape for reinforcing seams and corners, and over epoxy fillets on plywood stitch and glue boats. 8.7 oz/Yd.

would this work for bow backing material with smooth on epoxy?
Yes! This tape works for bow backing and between the layers, when using smooth on epoxy. Be sure to use the firehose press, as this method will remove all bubbles from the epoxy.
what is "smooth on epoxy"?
Yeah I think so. This tape has no adhesiveness at all, so put a layer of epoxy on first, then the tape, and then brush an additional layer (or 2) of epoxy on top.
it's fairly heavy at 8.7 oz.and is ridged at the edges, due to the continuous weave. but if the epoxy is able to saturate the cloth, you'll be fine as far as compatibility. (gels are probably too viscous)
how thick is this ?
Not measured but with epozy resin soaked its probably 1/8" thick. Used on the top surface of a Nacra 18 hull joint. Holding well. Clean look.
the tape is about 1/32" thick-the extra stitching along the edges is about 1/16"- keeps it from unraveling- but it all depends on the weight of the cloth
does the fiberglass tape have a stickie side like tape????
yes, I am aware. We have our own adhesive...I just need to know how much you have in stock, and how much I can get here at my location in Houston, TX by this Thursday. Also, if you can give a quantity discount. I need over 1000 rolls of this material. I'm sure you don't have that much, but if the price is right I will be happy to take what you do have. Please advise
Fiberglass tape refers to the narrow width of the fabric. There is no adhesive on this product.
Fiberglass tape cloth
Used with pond shield to line the edges in a plywood aquarium.
it met my standards
I used this fiberglass tape to reinforce the perimeter of some plywood bench seats for my small aluminum boat. The tape saved me from having to cut strips from a large sheet.
