3D Glass Fabric

3D Glass Fabric is a woven E-glass yarn and consists of two surface (deck) layers connected together by vertical links (piles). These links are woven together with the surface layers thus forming an integrated sandwich structure. When a thermoset resin such as polyester or epoxy is added to the 3D glass fabric and lightly rolled, the surface fabric is impregnated with the resin. Capillary action also wets out the connecting links, so that when the fabric rebounds to its full height it a hollow core is formed (much like the tree trunks is a forest). This one-step process forms a sandwich laminate that offers excellent strength, stiffness, lightweight and durability.
