The glass filament fabric with a basis weight of 163 g / m² can be used in very different areas. The filament fabric with a weight of 163 grams per square meter is especially suitable for model making and boat building. Especially for components that have a strong geometric structure. The glass filament fabric is used not only in the manufacturing industry, but also in craftsmen and even in the hobby field. Depending on the type of weave, the fabric can be draped better (twill weave) or non-slip (plain weave).
Glass filament fabrics have a "wavy surface" due to interweaving. This is called ondulation. The burlap is noticeable in the drapery, which is a little heavier, as in the twill weave. The plain weave has a very high structural strength. The glass fiber content is also higher than chopped strand mats, which simplifies processing and saves money, as it requires less polyester resin or epoxy resin. You can use polyester resin as well as epoxy resin. This saving amortizes the slightly more expensive glass filament fabrics and makes working with the composite look even more relaxed. The weight of 163 grams refers to one square meter.
