First Quality

Fibre Glast seeks to delight our customers with a consistently excellent experience.

When it comes to composite materials, even the smallest flaw can easily compromise a finished part. Fibre Glast is committed to ensuring that the products we handle are always “First Quality” and manufactured in the USA to the highest standards. We never buy closeouts or products from unknown origins. That means you can expect the same exceptional properties and handling characteristics every time you order.

Reinforcements

Reinforcements are the most critical aspect of any project. Saving money on reinforcements can result in a low quality part that can lead to failure. Whether it is fiberglass, carbon fiber or Kevlar, fabric weavers have very strict guidelines about fabrics which are considered First Quality. When they certify a First Quality fabric, it can be used in any of the most demanding applications—from marine craft to space craft.

We require that all of our fabrics are...

  • Manufactured by ISO-certified facilities in the USA.
  • Finished to our specs to ensure complete compatibility with all of our resins.
  • Arrive with certifications confirming that they meet our published specs.
  • Have been tested to ASTM standards (when applicable).

What about seconds?

Sometimes a fabric can have a small flaw which constitutes second quality. Whether it’s as small as excessive broken fibers or a missed weave, or has a hole big enough to put your fist through, it is still second quality. Seconds can sometimes be usable, but you will not find them in our stock. Period.

If any of our stock is damaged or dirtied after it arrives at Fibre Glast, you may find these with full disclosure in our Clearance Corner at a dramatic price reduction. We value consistency.

Resins

First Quality also makes a difference with resins, as does shelf life. Some resins do not provide best quality results over a year--if you purchase resin that has floating "eyes" or has started to gel in the bottom of the can, you will never achieve the full properties of your reinforcement. This is too common for resins sold in brick and mortar stores or at a discount.

We actively monitor manufacturing dates and guarantee you a minimum 6-month shelf life from your date of purchase with all of our polyester and epoxy resins; vinyl ester is guaranteed for 3 months.

Like our fabrics, our resins are manufactured in the USA with complete specs and ASTM-standard test results. You can trust your composite part knowing that your resin will yield top performance.

Supplies

Some brushes will dissolve in resin. Some cups will dissolve in acetone. Some scissors won’t cut some fabrics. We stock supplies that are all tested to be suitable with any of our resins or other materials.

If you are not pleased with the quality of the tools your order from us, you have 30 days from order ship date to return it to us for a refund.
