What is the difference between epoxy fiberglass and E-glass?
Developed in conjunction with the new Greenlight Marine Grade Epoxy System, EPOXY Fiberglass is manufactured with a proprietary coating of organic materials that improves epoxy wet-out when laminating and increases the epoxy molecule bonding between glass fibers as well as to the substrate (foam, wood, fiberglass, etc.)
Both short-sterm and long-term composite performances are improved by optimizing the epoxy bonding energy to the glass fibers in the matrix of the composite. Resulting in stronger and lighter products with consistent performance.
We recommend laminating EPOXY Fiberglass with Greenlight Marine Grade Epoxy Resin System for optimal results.
What’s the difference between epoxy fiberglass and regular fiberglass and can you use epoxy fiberglass with pu resin?
EPOXY Fiberglass is manufactured with a proprietary coating of organic materials that improves epoxy wet-out when laminating and increases the epoxy molecule bonding between glass fibers as well as to the substrate (foam, wood, fiberglass, etc.). This fiberglass will also work extremely well with Polyester resin.
Price is $5.27. Is that per roll or per yard?
6 oz Epoxy Fiberglass Cloth is sold by the yard. Here are all of the lengths that 6 oz Epoxy Fiberglass Cloth can be purchased from Greenlight Surf Supply:
- By the Yard
- 10 yard Roll
- 30 Yard Roll
- 125 Yard Full Roll
Would this fiberglass paired with the Marine Grade epoxy resin work well for a wooden longboard/skateboard?
The 6oz fiberglass cloth is what we would suggest to use with Greenlight Marine Grade Epoxy for a wooden skateboards.
Exactly how long is a 10 yard roll? Will it be able to do a longboard fully, two layers on bottom and one on top?
A 10 yard roll of 6 oz. Epoxy Fiberglass Cloth is 30 feet of fberglass cloth. This amount will cover a longboard with 2 layers on the deck and one one the botton.
I need 5 yards of fiberglass. If I add five of the “By the Yard” option to my cart, will I get a single roll of five yards of fiberglass? Thanks.
You'll receive 5 continuous yards of fiberglass on a roll
Is there an optical effect with this glass like, say, a volan tint or like the “Brightener” in Entropy’s “BRT”?
No the fiberglass cloth is clear when laminated.
Can you epoxy 2 layers of fiberglass at once (or one layer, cure, sand, then final layer)?
You can laminate 2 layers of fiberglass at a time as explained in our Surfboard Building Guide
