Glass Tape, also known as Woven Tape or Glass Scrim is a very useful product and very easy to use. In particular its selvedged edges prevent fraying during use. Ideally suited to laminating pultrusions and tight radii, this tape will lay flat where chopped strand mats refuse to! Due to the woven pattern this product will provide high strength in localised areas. Its uses also include sheathing of wooden canoes, seam sealing on dinghys and small surfboard repairs. You can use a couple of layers of tape to make a basic support case for a RTV Silicone or Latex mould.
175gsm weight you will need two layers to make up the same glass weight as 300gsm mat, however the rapid wet out and ease of use mean you can go for two layers in one go. One layer should be wetted first before starting the second!
Available in several widths, 25mm (1inch), 50mm (2 inches), 75mm (3 inches), 100mm (4 inches) & 150mm (6 inches).
