Short Fibers with High-Strength Results
Mix this milled glass with any resin, body filler, or casting material to increase strength, bulk, and dimensional stability for parts.
- Milled glass helps reduce shrinkage and increase moduli for parts, so it's popular for electrical/automotive components.
- It is often used with vinyl ester resin as a corrosion-resistant, blister repair putty for deep boat hull damage (a ketchup consistency delivers best results).
- Both fiber length and bulk density are controlled by the screen size—1⁄16" refers to the hole diameter of the hammermill screens used to mill the fibers, and lengths may vary up to this dimension.
For similar properties, but smaller fibers, see the 1⁄32" Milled Glass Fiber, #38.
This filler is compatible with epoxy, polyester, and vinyl ester resin systems. Add filler after adding catalyst to resin.
Add fibers to resin 5% by weight.
