4oz S-Cloth - 27 Inch "S" Glass fabrics are used by competitive riders for its added strength, durability and light weight characteristics.
S-Glass (high “Strength” glass) is an improved glass fiber for use in more structurally demanding applications. It has significantly higher strength and moderately higher stiffness than standard E-glass fiber. The density of S-glass is slightly lower than E-glass (2.49g/cc vs. 2.54g/cc), subsequently you can expect a laminate that is 20-35% lighter than the equivalent made from E-glass fiber
That is why the world's most competitive surfers choose "S" glass fabric.
Woven fiberglass cloth fabrics are very common for marine, surfboard, composite construction and repair. Light weight fiberglass fabric tend to provide a smooth finish, which is ideal in surfboard construction and are also excellent for producing a waterproofing layer over wood or other surfaces when combined with the appropriate resin. When greater strength and overall rigidity is needed, heavier fiberglass cloth fabrics will help to achieve this. All of our fiberglass cloth fabrics are compatible for use with our polyester resins, epoxy resins and vinyl ester resin.
Our surfboard specific Fabrics are produced with extra care to meet the rigorous requirements of the surfboard/SUP industry. Extra steps are takin to ensure a clear, consistent, uniform fiberglass fabric. Surfboard specific fabric finishes provide a soft pliable cloth with a transparent clear laminate as a finished product.
