The versatility of glass as a fiber makes it a unique industrial textile material. Woven glass fibers offer an excellent combination of properties from high strength to fire resistance at the more affordable costs supported by industry tests. Hexcell fiberglass cloth sports the following stats:

Dimensional Stability - maximum elongation for “E” glass at break is 4.8% with a 100% elastic recovery when stressed close to its point of rupture.

Moisture Resistance glass fibers do not absorb moisture, and do not change physically or chemically when exposed to water.

High Strength - the high strength-to-weight ratio of glass fiber makes it a superior material in applications where high strength and minimum weight are required.

Fire Resistance glass fiber is an inorganic material and will not burn or support combustion. It retains approximately 25% of its initial strength at 1000°F (540°C).

Chemical Resistance most chemicals have little or no effect on glass fiber. The inorganic glass textile fibers will not mildew, rot or deteriorate

Electrical Propertiesglass fiber is an excellent material for electrical insulation. The combination of properties such as low moisture absorption, high strength, heat resistance and low dielectric constant makes fiber glass fabrics ideal as a reinforcement for printed circuit boards and insulating varnishes.

Thermal Conductivitya low coefficient of thermal expansion combined with high thermal conductivity properties makes glass fabric a dimensionally stable material that rapidly dissipates heat as compared to asbestos and organic fibers.

  • 4 oz. and 6 oz cloth weight available
  • 27" width and 30" width available

4 oz cloth should typically be used in shortboards and nearly always for HP Shortboards.  6 oz. cloth is good for most other boards. For both 4 oz and 6 oz boards, put two layers of cloth on the deck and on layer on the bottom. Additional patches may be added to areas that get the most abuse. Patch at your own discretion. Don't be afraid to experiment.
