Biaxial Fiberglass Cloth 6″ wide, 17 oz.
Biaxial fabric consists of two layers stitched together, with their fiber strands lying at +/- 45 degrees to the edges (instead of along the roll and across at 90 degrees, as with plain weave fiberglass fabrics). “1708” indicates the weight of each layer. For example, the +/- 45 biaxial weave cloth is 17 oz. per square yard, and the mat backing is 8 oz. per square yard, so the total weight is 25 oz. per square yard.
Biaxial fabric requires less resin, and conforms easily
Flat, non-crimped fibers result in less print-through and greater stiffness than woven fabrics
