Pacer Z-Poxy or Great Planes finishing resin also sold in my listings
Sold in 1 metre lengths. Each qty of 1 reflects 1m of cloth.
This is superb quality fiberglass cloth with a soft, silky weave that will be perfect for Heavy duty general reinforement work on wing centres, to make gear doors etc etc. Use it for laying up plugs and a myriad of other uses
if you team it with a finishing epoxy such as Great Planes or Pacer Z-Poxy Finishing Resin (sold seperately in my listings) or Araldite LC3600 you will get superb results.
Epoxy and polyester compatible. This is a plain weave reinforcement fabric
Many uses for modelling, boating, aviation and automotive uses.
Excellent for reinforcing model airplane fuselages and wings.
Even finish surfboards, sailboards, canoes etc if you want to.
This listing is for a 1 meter (one) length of style 108 which is a 1.4 oz/sq yd 50" wide fiberglass cloth finished in a Silane for epoxy resins.
Style 108 is a 1.4 oz/sq yd plain weave E glass with a thread count of 60 x 47 ends/inch (warp and fill respectively) that uses the yarn ECD 900-1/2 in both the warp (lengthwise yarn down the roll) and the fill (yarn that goes side to side), is 0.0024" thick and has a published breaking strength of 70 x 40 lbf/inch warp and fill.
The "E" in ECD 900-1/2 means it is E glass, E for Electrical, is the composition of the glass itself 52-56% Silicone Dioxide, 16-25% Calcium Oxide, 12% Aluminum Oxide, 5-10% Boron Oxide, 0-2% Sodium and Potassium Oxide, 0 - .5% Magnesium Oxide, 0.05-.8% Titanium Oxide and a negligible amount of Fluorides. E-glass is the most common fiberglass used and is used in Boat building, circuit boards, etc and is just the actual composition of the glass. The other major glass types are S glass which has a high percentage of Silicone Dioxide at 64 - 66%, almost no Calcium Oxide, more Aluminum Oxide at 24 - 26%, no Boron, more Magnesium Oxide (9-11% vs almost none for E-glass) and zilch of the Titanium Oxide and Fluorides. S glass is 20% or a little better in strength. The other major type of glass is C for chemical resistance as used in stucco or concrete - generally mesh type weaves. What we are selling here is E glass - the most commonly used type in any type of composite construction - boat building, RC models, kayaks, surfboards, circuit boards and so on.
The "C" designates the filament as being continuous and just means that the yarn is made out of true monofilament glass strands. Viewed with a microscope they appear as truly perfect beautiful glass rods.
The "D" in the ECD 900-1/2 for style 108 means it has a glass filament diameter of 5 microns. The smaller the filament the higher the assumed tensile strength and the more flexible the woven fabric will be.
The 900 in ECD 900-1/2 defines the weight of the yarn itself. You add 2 zeros to this number which will be the yards per pound for the yarn making it 90,000.
The 1/2 in ECD 900-1/2 means there are two of the 90,000 yards per pound of the yarn twisted together so the actual yards of the yarn per pound would bring that down to 45,000. 108 is very similar to 1080 which uses just one ECD 450 yarn which is twice the number of glass filaments as the 108 but with just the one by itself making it the flat version of 108. The point here would be that 1080 would be more for circuit boards and 108 more for anything used in composites but because of the 1080 much more available it is more commonly used in hand lay up construction than the 108. We've sold thousands of yards of both with much more of the 1080 than the 108 just because of the amount woven. Both 108 and 1080 have the same thread count of 60 x 47 and other characteristics. You could assume the 108 would be just a tad thicker because of the yarn twist which is verified with published numbers of 0.0024" thickness for 108 versus 0.0021" to 0.0022" for 1080.
