Basalt/Eglass Hybrid 4oz Composite Cloth
Why Mix Fiberglass and Basalt together? Why Not?.
Basalt /Eglass direct Size 4oz cloth is easily laminated just like 4oz eglass but has the strength of Sglass in the vertical thread of the cloth and has the industry standard fibreglass in the horizontal this brings the 2 materials together with amazing dampening properties in this performance cloth - so less chatter on EPS boards
What is Basalt?
Basalt is a hard dense volcanic rock. It’s an igneous rock formed through the rapid cooling and solidification of lava. Basalt fibre is produced in a continuous process using crushed basalt rock, the only raw material required for its manufacture. It provides a good compromise between glass (20% stronger) and carbon (Not as brittle)
- Strong impact protection – will not shatter like carbon fibre
- Naturally UV resistant
- Maintains its physical integrity in stressful situations
- High tensile strength
- Similar flex to Fibreglass performance
This 4oz Eglass part of this cloth is a high tensile clear yarn which is the correct size, meaning the fabrics need no further heat treatment with a coupling agent. This means a stronger cloth which is about 20-30% stronger than your normal "baked or heat treated" yarn!
- Reduction of deposits and fuzz
- Improved process-ability
- Lower friction coefficient
- Easier impregnation with resins
