Scrim Cloth – White
Woven fabrics are strong reinforcements because the fibres are bundled into yarns oriented in just two directions. The warp and fill yarns run at 0 and 90 degrees respectively. Thus, fabrics are anisotropic (or strong) in only two directions. Fabrics need to be oriented so the fibre yarns run parallel to the expected loads. If extra strength is needed in a different direction, another ply must be added, at an angle different to the first. The most common angles are +/- 45 degrees. Scrim cloth can be used in repair applications or for reinforcement of other types of materials including fibreglass, concrete and some plastics. When the scrim cloth is fully cured it will add reinforcement and mimic the expansion and contraction of the surrounding substrate.
