1.5 oz./sq. ft. mat, 4" wide, .045" Thick 10 yd. roll
1.5 oz/sq ft mat, 4" Wide, 0.045" ThickChopped Strand Mat Tape is ideally suited to reinforce the seams, corners, or edges of larger parts made from chopped strand mat or other fiberglass fabrics.Fabricators generally tear apart this tape, rather than cut it. This maintains the length of fibers along the torn edge, which create stronger bonds with subsequent layers.Mat Tape is called tape only for its width and appearance. It is not adhesive backed. Like its fabric counterpart, it contains a binder that holds it together and prevents proper bonding with any epoxy resins. PLEASE NOTE: it is only compatible with polyester or vinyl ester resins.For applications requiring a wider format, use Chopped Strand Mat in 38-inch (#250) and 50-inch (#1250) widths.

Used to reinforce corners in a marine plywood construction water tank. Applied with epoxy. Absolutely awful for this purpose - the mat does not hold together when viscous mixed epoxy - Pond Armor - is applied over it. I ended up with glass fibers all over everything. What a mess. On the contrary, the tank is doing its job, hence the two stars. Perhaps this is not an application intended for this stuff? Or maybe there is no better way?
