Scrim Cloth, White

Woven fabrics are strong reinforcements because the fibers 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 fiber yarns run parallel to the expected loads. If extra strength is needed in a different direction, another ply must be added at an angle 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 fiberglass, concrete and some plastics. When fully cured, the scrim cloth will add reinforcement and mimic the expansion and contraction of the surrounding substrate.

High Tensile Strength: Glass is one of the strongest textile fibers, having greater specific tensile strength than steel wire of the same diameter, at a lower weight
Dimensional Stability: Low elongation under load, generally 3% or less. Glass fibers produce fabrics with excellent dimensional stability under various types of conditions.
High Heat Resistance: Glass fabrics have excellent dimensional stability under various types of conditions.
Fire Resistance: Composed of inorganic materials, glass fabrics are noncombustible, a natural choice where flammability is a concern.
Chemical Resistance: Like glass itself, fiberglass fabrics are highly resistant to attack by most chemicals.
Durability: Being inert, glass fabrics are unaffected by sunlight, fungus, or bacteria.
Economical: Glass fabrics are lower in cost than many other fabrics for smaller applications.
