Fiberglass Biaxial FabricsFiberglass Biaxial fabric is composed of two layers of unidirectional fiberglass cloth.
The fibers are laid at 45 degrees to each other. The biaxial tape is backed with an epoxy-compatible mat. The material is strong, yet conformable and light-weight. It is available in full rolls of 75 yards. The strands of fiberglass are oriented to form a braid and run at an angle. It is not woven.For a better result, choose biaxial fabrics. Unlike woven tape, biaxial fabrics are stronger per unit thickness.
Their fibres are stitched together at a 45 degree angle. The fibers pass through at a constant 45 degree angle, making them stronger per tow. The resulting high-surface appearance makes the fabric attractive for a wide variety of applications. These materials are compatible with Epoxy Resin systems.
Biaxial fibercloth is ideal for tabbing. The flat crimped fibers lend more stiffness to the fabric than woven fabrics.
Its 3/4-oz mat backing adds extra thickness and makes it more flexible. The lightweight nylon thread that holds the biaxial cloth together will not affect the structural integrity of the cloth. It's also great for repair jobs. Unlike woven cloth, biaxial fiberglass cloth is ideal for repairs and reinforcing.
1708 Biaxial is one of the most popular biaxial materials on the market. It has excellent wet out properties and is a stiff, flat laminate. Larger orders of this material will be shipped by truck freight. It can be purchased by the linear meter or by the square yard. It has an average thickness of 450gr per square yard. It is the perfect choice for laminating and reinforcing purposes.
A biaxial cloth is sold in full rolls of 25 yards. It is lighter than a 1708 biaxial and is commonly used for marine construction. It is compatible with vinyl ester and epoxy resin. If you need a large amount, you can purchase cloths by the linear yard. You can choose from a wide variety of sizes. You can order one linear yard or a full roll of this material. The minimum order quantity is one linear yard.Chopped strand mat is the least expensive fiberglass available.
It is used in projects where a higher-quality product is desired. Its texture is similar to a woven fabric, which makes it less desirable for a project. Its texture can show through a thin layer of resin. Consequently, a thin layer of fiberglass is required to achieve the desired results. A thicker layer of resin is necessary to ensure a good bond.
