10 oz Fabric
Industry Standard for Parts and Tooling
10 oz/sq yd, 38", 50" & 60" Wide, 0.015" Thick, 16 x 14 Plain Weave
The 10-ounce Plain Weave—also known as Style 7500—is the most frequently chosen boat cloth. It is often used in mold building, sandwich core panels, and high-strength lay-ups.
Like all plain weave fabrics, it delivers uniform strength in both horizontal and vertical directions, with warp and fill yarns at 0 and 90 degrees, respectively. Orient this fabric so that yarns run parallel to expected loads.
Before starting the lay-up process, fabricators should consider:
- To maximize strength, add layers at alternating 45-degree angles, one on top the next.
- Use with epoxy, polyester, or vinyl ester resin to produce composite parts of excellent strength, low weight, and great cosmetics.
- All of the woven tapes in our fiberglass category closely match this fabric.

This fabric is sold by the linear yard, either as a prepackaged quantity or by continuous yardage.
This fabric is available in pre-cut lengths that measure one yard (#245-A, #271-B & #247-F,folded package), three yards (#245-B, #271-A & #247-A folded package), and five yards (#245-C, #271-B & #247-B folded package). Each is packaged and sold separately. For your convenience, these "prepacks" can be purchased in any combination. However, if the length for any one fabric totals 10 yards or more, we suggest you purchase it in continuous, "cut to length" yardage.
Continuous, "Cut to Length" Yardage
If you know in advance that you intend to purchase 10 yards or more of any one fabric, it should be ordered in continuous, "cut to length" yardage. In this case, fabric will be cut once according to the total yardage ordered, and customers receive a price-per-yard discount as compared to prepacks.
Quantity discounts continue to deepen as the yardage increases for any one cut of one fabric.
