Fibreglassing

Fibreglass Fabrics

Chop-Stran Mat

Chop-stran mat is a fibreglass textile made from a layer of randomly orientated glass fibres held together with a small amount of dextrin. It is not a weave like fibreglass cloth or fibreglass tape.  It comes in various weights, but in general it is quite a heavy textile and absorbs a decent amount of resin. It makes quite a strong material when set and the strength is omni-directional (unlike some weaves in which the material is stronger in one direction than the other).
