Style 120 E-Glass
3 oz/sq yd, 38" Wide, 0.005" Thick, 60 x 58, 4H Satin Weave


Satin weave fabrics are frequently specified for aerospace and structural applications, and offer excellent strength and surfacing characteristics. The 4H Satin Weave, in particular, is very lightweight and tightly woven, with fiberglass bundles repeatedly woven to float over three bundles, then under one.

Before starting the lay-up process, fabricators should consider:
  • Satin weaves are flatter and conform to shapes easily, but note that they are also more easily distorted than other weaves.
  • Each side of this fabric is either largely fill or warp fibers, so opposite sides will look much different. To produce a symmetrical laminate, invert half the plies.
  • To maximize strength for your part, use with an epoxy, like our System #2000. Fiberglass composites also boast low weight and great cosmetics.


Fibre Glast is committed to ensuring that every roll of fabric we handle is First Quality and manufactured to the highest standards, so that you can expect the same finish, sizing, and handling characteristics every time you order.

Meets MIL-C-9084C, Type III.

Typical full roll length is 125 yards.
Urethane Casting Resin - Shore A
Create Flexible Parts or Molds


Pour tough, flexible parts and molds with Urethane Casting Resin Shore A. Available in two hardness variations, 40 Shore A and 60 Shore A. These urethane casting resins make it easy to create softer more resilient parts and tooling. These urethane casting resins have been designed specifically for the pouring of prototype and production parts. They can also be used to create fast flexible molds with good life. They offer some undercut or negative draft. While silicone can be used to create more flexible and lower cost molds, Urethane offers superior tear strength and offer 3-4 times the mold life. Shore A resins can accept pigments to achieve opaque colors in finished castings. These Urethanes are used in many common mainstream products, but are especially popular in automotive applications.

When mixed thoroughly, pour the urethane slowly to aid the release of any air bubbles. When using Urethane Casting Resin Shore A kits, avoid water and all types of moisture contamination. Do not use any urethane kit with PVA Release Film, and do not mix with wooden mixing sticks. #2333 Plastic Paint Stirrers for Urethanes are recommended. To ensure a proper release from a mold, use at least four layers of #4121 Non-Silicone High Temp Paste Wax.

Urethane Casting Resins with Shore A hardness can completely cure at room temperature, but can also be heat cured up to 150°F for faster production rates.

Unidirectional Carbon Fabric (9.0 oz)
9.0 oz/sq yd, 12" Wide, 0.014" Thick, 12K Standard Modulus


This unidirectional fabric is non-woven. Consequently, there is no crimping of the fibers and only minimal binder is used. Polyester fill threads on one side further reduce crimp potential. This results in the highest property unidirectional dry reinforcement available.

Unidirectional fabrics add strength in only one direction. To maximize the strength of this carbon fiber, use an epoxy resin system, like our System #2000.

Our 9-ounce version is a standard modulus fabric with a tensile modulus of more than 20 MSI, and is used in many marine applications such as boat hulls, as well as hockey sticks and bicycles. If your application calls for higher strength properties, consider our#2596 Unidirectional Fabric, a 4.3-ounce, which features over 24 MSI.

Fibre Glast is committed to ensuring that every roll of fabric we handle is First Quality and manufactured to the highest standards, so that you can expect the same properties and handling characteristics every time you order.
3K, Plain Weave Carbon Fiber Fabric
5.7 oz/sq yd, 50" Wide, 0.012" Thick, 12.5 x 12.5 Plain Weave


For lightweight aerodynamic parts, this plain weave carbon fiber is a commonly selected fabric style, delivering uniform strength in both horizontal and vertical directions. In fact, this fabric boasts an ultimate tensile strength of at least 610 KSI—most competitors offer only around 500 KSI.

It wets out quickly and handles easily. Only three layers are typically necessary to produce non-structural pieces.

Some considerations when creating composite parts with the #530:
  • To maximize strength properties, use with an epoxy, like our System 2000 Epoxy Resin (#2000).
  • During the lay-up process, add each layer at an alternating 45-degree angle to maximize strength properties.
  • This fabric is available in thin strip tapes for unique shapes or wrapping applications.

Unidirectional Carbon Fabric (4.3 oz)
4.3 oz/sq yd, 12" Wide, 0.006" Thick, 12K Intermediate Modulus


This unidirectional fabric is non-woven. Consequently, there is no crimping of the fibers and only minimal binder is used. Polyester fill threads on one side further reduce crimp potential. This results in the highest property unidirectional dry reinforcement available.

Unidirectional fabrics add strength in only one direction. To maximize the strength of this carbon fiber, use an epoxy resin system, like our System #2000.

Our 4.3-ounce version is an intermediate modulus fabric with a tensile modulus of more than 24 MSI, and is ideally suited for aerospace and racing applications where maximum single-directional properties are crucial.

2 Lb. Polyurethane Mix and Pour Foam
For Flotation, Sculpting, and Cavity Filling

This 2 lb. density foam comes as a two-part kit, both parts equally mixed. It is a closed-cell system, meaning individual cells of foam trap in air and keep liquids out. As a result, it is most frequently used for flotation applications, delivering 60 pounds of float per cubic foot. It can be used to fill cavities for reinforcement and insulation, and can be shaped or carved , once cured, for use as a plug in mold-making or sculpting.

  • 2 lb. foam expands approximately 30 times its liquid volume before cure, and will fill any shape.
  • Once two parts are mixed, it will begin to react and expand within 45 seconds, and will continue for several minutes.
  • Closed-cell structure does not react with oil or gasoline, and will not absorb water.
  • Laminate directly onto foam using epoxy or polyester resin; it can also be used with urethane pigments (#141, #143, #152), latex paint, and parting wax (#1016) when used in-mold.

Before filling cavities for insulation, flotation or reinforcement, determine how much foam you'll need.

  • First, calculate the volume of your container in cubic feet. For example 1 ft. high x 1 ft. long x 2 ft. deep = 2 total cubic feet.
  • Second, for 2 lb. foam, multiply that total by 2.5. In this case, 2 cubic ft. x 2.5 = 5 lb. of required foam.

This foam is designed to meet USCG Title 33, Chapter 1, Part 183 when mixed properly.

Chopper Gun
Quick Glass Build Up

Our 1171 is a hand held, variable speed air powered chopper gun that is primarily used for coating molds or parts with fiberglass or carbon fiber reinforcement. Continuous glass roving is fed into the rear of the gun. The gun then chops the roving into short pieces and deposits them onto the mold. Resin is then applied by brush, roller or sprayed on using a cup gun.

By altering the number and location of chopper blades, the length of the fibers can be varied from 4" down to 5/16". This gun will deposit the equivalent of one layer of 1 oz mat onto a vertical surface without fall-off before wet-out. Ideally suited to quick mold or part build-up once the first layer or two are in place.

Use a fiberglass saturation roller to remove trapped air. New design increases cutter head surface by 32% and increased quantity of chopped material between blade replacements by 33%. Our 1171 chopper gun is compatible with our #522 Gun Roving and #2293 24K Carbon Tow.
Carbon Fiber Tape
5.7 oz/sq yd, Various Widths, 0.012" Thick, 3K Plain Weave


Carbon fiber tape is ideal for selective reinforcement of carbon fiber fabrications, sleeve winding, lap joining, and repairs of cracks on graphite surfaces. Just like their wider carbon fabric counterparts, these standard modulus tapes offer higher ultimate tensile strength and stiffness-to-weight ratios than any other commonly available reinforcements.

Carbon fabric tapes are referred to as tapes only for their width and appearance—they are not adhesive backed. Their finished edges offer easier handling and a clean, finished appearance. They are ideal for use in auto racing, aerospace, competition marine, and light industrial applications.

To maximize the fiber properties, use with epoxy or vinyl ester resins. Polyester resin is also suitable, and is primarily used in cosmetic applications where higher strength-to-weight ratios are not a factor.
