Style 104 fiberglass cloth is the famous half ounce cloth used in model planes. What you're buying here is finished in the soft 504 Volan for any resin but normally used is Epoxy. The two main groups of finishes are Silanes and Volan. Volan is a chrome based finish that's been around since the 50's and is still the preferred finish for cloth where conformability or drape is needed. We refer to it as being soft since many people are not really familiar with "drape". We don't get much 104 in any more that is suitable for resins and especially for balsa model building so are just selling what little we have to the individual model builders. We apologize to the bigger re sellers that we used to wholesale to but are just not able to do that anymore. We have the 104 26" 504 Volan finished rolls in 5, 10 and 20 yards. All rolls are rolled on lighter weight foam core 2" pvc pipe. All rolls are carefully packed in a protective smooth layer next to the cloth first. This may be a polyester mat type fabric or plain packing paper, then the plastic sleeve, then bubble pack or corrugated wrap smooth side next to the plastic then a final layer of corrugated wrap. We don't put any kind of tape on the cloth anywhere on any style. When you get rolls of cloth from us after you get past the tape on the outside of the roll that's the last you'll see of it. And everything is all rolled in the same direction to keep the cloth tight and not doubling up on itself. These are minor details but after many years of experience packing and shipping thousands and thousands of rolls these processes have come to be important for you the customer.
