Fiberglass Cloth. Plain weave, 14mils thick (10oz.). Use this fiberglass cloth to create high strength parts. It is popular for lamination and high strength casting. It is also, often used in fiberglass mold making. Woven fiberglass cloths are very common for marine & composite construction and repair. Light weight cloths tend to provide a smooth finish and are excellent for producing a waterproofing layer over wood or other surfaces when combined with the appropriate resin. Heavier cloths will provide greater strength and overall rigidity. All of our fiberglass cloths are compatible for use with polyester, epoxy or polyurethane resins

AquaVeil (AQG Surface veil) - Aqua-Veil surfacing veil is an easy to use, safe and minimally irritating, continuous or long strand, fiberglass mat material with multiple uses in Aqua-Resin laminating, and foam - coating applications. Aqua-Veil can be used to both strengthen and unify a thinly applied gel/surface coat on a mold surface, and in doing so prevent cracking or premature release of the gel coat from the mold surface. In addition it can be post - applied to already cured, or curing part surfaces to provide a smoother surface for sanding and other finishing operations. Two primary uses for Aqua-Veil are Foam-Coating and gel/surface coats. Because of its specially formulated, soluble binder, the individual glass filaments easily separate when brush applied into a wet Aqua-Resin mix, allowing the Aqua-Veil to fully assume the three-dimensional contour of the surface to which it is applied. 40” wide.
