Among reinforcements, Fiberglass Fabrics continue to be the most commonly used reinforcement in the composites industry today. Generally, they are the least expensive among reinforcements and offer ease in handling. And when combined with resin, deliver composite parts with excellent strength, low weight, and great cosmetics.
All Fiberglass Fabrics are woven for fiber orientation, and each fabric features its own unique weight, strength, and fabric characteristics, which should be considered before starting any project.

Fiberglass fabrics feature different weaves as noted:
- Plain Weaves—Least expensive and least pliable, but hold together well when cut
- Twill Weaves—A compromise between plain and satin weaves; pliable with moderate strength and desirable cosmetics
- Satin Weaves—Pliable with moderate strength; feature one fill yarn that floats over 3–7 warp yarns before being stitched beneath another; produce flatter fabrics
No matter which weave you select, all the fiberglass fabrics on our site are made to be used with resin. When combined, fabric and resin form a chemical bond that results in a hard, composite part, like a boat hull, that we often refer to as being fiberglass. Technically, it is a fiberglass composite. Fiberglass composites are frequently used for marine, aerospace, and structural applications.
Fibre Glast is committed to ensuring that every roll of fiberglass fabric we handle is First Quality and manufactured to the highest standards. That means you can expect the same properties and handling characteristics every time you order.
