- 0.5 mm layer thickness
- Processable with Polyester resin
- Moulds easily
Fibreglass chopped strand mat is the most commonly used reinforcement material for making laminates with the "hand lay-up" technique. The glass fibres are cross-linked and are held together by a binder. This binder dissolves in styrene (e.g. polyester resin) and can therefore take on many different shapes during lamination.
Fibreglass chopped strand mat 225 gr/m2. is often used as a first layer behind polyester gelcoat. It is also used for complicated mould shapes.
Surface weight: 225 gr/m2.
