Mutual Industries Fiberglass Repair Tape
Please note: Items Cut to Custom Lengths Are Not Returnable.
- Mutual Industries Fiberglass Repair Tape is a 9 ounce Basket weave
- Finished selvaged edge prevents unraveling
- Extremely useful for finishing work, strengthening stress points, reinforcing cabin edges, gunwales, keels, rudders, oars, etc.
- Mutual Industries removes the lubricating sizing applied to fiberglass yarns so that they can become compatible with most thermosetting resins
- This removal process is done by baking the cloth and removing the sizes through burn-off
- Many types of chemical finishes are applied by Mutual after heat treatment
- Chemicals used by Mutual in processing fiberglass fabrics are designed to be compatible with thermosetting resins
- This serves to vastly improve resin bonding by chemical bridging
- At Mutual the finishing and processing operations, including the application and control of chemicals, is conducted under strict quality control standards
- Fiberglass boat, tooling and structural reinforcement tapes are used primarily for "wet lay-up" applications
- To optimize the tape's wettability and cure time characteristics, Mutual fiberglass tapes are manufactured with a fairly open weave
- To insure maximum compatibility between the glass and resin, Mutual uses advanced state-of-the art heat cleaning and finishing equipment.
