4 oz Fiberglass Fabric
Conformable and Lightweight Fabric for General Use
This 4-ounce Plain Weave Fiberglass Fabric is our most popular selection for use as a surface fabric, with enough body to be easily handled. This fiberglass wets out to a transparent, protective barrier, and can be used to prevent print-through of heavier fabrics underneath. It is often chosen for strip-built canoes and final layering over moldless designs.
Like other plain weaves, it delivers uniform strength in both horizontal and vertical directions, with warp and fill yarns at 0 and 90 degrees, respectively.
