Boat and Tooling Fiberglass Fabrics
Boat and tooling fiberglass fabrics can be roughly described as those
fabrics having low thread count, more open type construction for easy
wet out and drape. The "Boat" part of boat and tooling includes
repair type cloth and cloth for covering a wood boat. Now days
most boats are constructed with the knitted cloth materials like biax
and triax with some combinations of those. The "boat and tooling
fabrics" are what you find at the parts store in prepackaged bags.
On of the most common fiberglass repair type cloth is a 6 oz 7533 or
3733. Boat and tooling fabrics range from light weight 4 oz like
1522, which is also a surfboard fabric to the
heavy 7544 18 oz fiberglass fabric. Some
