Continuous Strand Mat is frequently used for rapid build-up of parts and molds, whether used alone or with other fiberglass fabrics. It wets out easily, is highly conformable, and is easily controlled for thickness, when uniformity is a factor.
When used with vacuum infusion, continuous strands looped throughout the mat facilitate the flow of resin, unlike the slowing effects often caused by chopped strand binders.
Continuous Strand Mat contains a binder which holds strands together, but prevents proper bonding with any epoxy resins. PLEASE NOTE: It is only compatible with polyester or vinyl ester resins.
Folded prepacks are typically shipped in a small box, or packaged in a box with other items on your order. Continuous Strand Mat ships in a long (45", 53", or 62") box. Click below on the "What to expect when you order Fabric" video to see how rolled fabrics are cut and shipped each time you order.
Continuous Strand Mat This mat is sold by the linear yard, either as a prepackaged quantity or by continuous yardage. Prepacks This mat is available in pre-cut lengths that measure one yard (#251-A, folded package), three yards (#251-B, roll), and five yards (#251-C, roll). Each is packaged and sold separately. For your convenience, these "prepacks" can be purchased in any combination. However, if the length for this mat 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 mat, it should be ordered in continuous, "cut to length" yardage. In this case, mat 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 this mat.
