Continuous Strand Mat
For orders placed before 2:30PM EST
Rapid Build-Up for Parts and Molds
1.5 oz/sq ft, 50" Wide, 0.060" Thick
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.
Typical full roll length is 125 yards.
Thanks for the review. We're sorry the mat wasn't to your liking. Of all of the materials, chopped strand mat can be the messiest due to its nature. If you're laying into a mold, it's best to use a surfacing fabric over the mat to make it a little easier to handle, and for a cleaner finish.
