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.

I am building a 12' boat and need 2 1/2 pounds of 3" tape. How many yards does this equate to? Thank you. Dale Heisinger
The 3" fiberglass tape weights 8.7oz. per sq. yd. as discribed in your tech specs. 2-1/2 lbs. is 40oz., 40 divided by 8.7 = 4.6 sq.yds. which equates to 166ft. at 3" wide. A 50yd. roll will give you 150ft. + a 10yd. roll will give you 30ft. for a total of 180ft. which is about 8% overage. It's alway good to have 5 to 10% overage. I hope this will help you.Good luck with your project,Joe
Easy to use and strong
Combined with polyurethane resin to reinforce the back of a very large but thin polyurethane resin sculpture. Worked beautifully, especially on flatter surfaces. Incredibly sturdy results.
3" fiberglass tape
Nice size - no frayed edges, perfect for my application
as advertised, I would buy there again
Using on new boat construction taping seams, seems to be correct weight, functions as expected

I have started to build my first wood boat, Spindrift 9N, and I am using this to reinforce joints in the stitch and glue assembly.
Yep, that's the stuff I'm looking for !
Good stuff, I have used it with all of west systems epoxies and hardners . The newest was the g-flex line... It was much harder to use but it was worth all the time and money. I suggest the wet out process for g-flex.
Good bang for the buck!
This tape was just what I needed in the length I needed and the price was right! Appears to be good quality as well.
