Knit Fiberglass Reinforcements, feature the fibers being laid in the same plane and knit or stitched together to increase mechanical properties. Typical composite knit reinforcement architectures are 0/90, +/- 45 biaxial, triaxial, uni-directional, and quadaxial fiber orientations. Most knit fiberglass reinforcements we stock both with and without a stitched mat backing. 0/90 knit reinforcements make great choice for resin infused composite applications. Fiberglass biaxial tapes are available in 12oz, 17oz, and 17oz w/mat options. We also stock carbon fiber knit reinforcements.
25.3 oz. X 8in., +45ø/-45ø Double bias w/mat, slit tape.
Great for heavy duty reinforcement or build up. Stitched mat on tape allows for fast buildup and helps bed layers. Use in bow and transom corners on larger stitch and glue boats and for stringer and bulhead tabbing on conventional boats.
Knit double bias carbon fiber cloth, +/- 45 degrees, 12 oz per sq. yd., great for structural applications, concrete reinforcement, spars, etc. Double bias knit allows conformability not found woven fabrics. 50 inches wide.
As a rule we roll all reinforcements for shipping in order to maintain their structural and cosmetic integrity.
