Chop Strand Mat
Split Strand Mat is a random fibre reinforcement. It is EMULSION bound mat and is designed for use with polyester and vinyl ester resin systems.
This mat is popular because of its lighter weight and better flexibility in tight or round applications due to its split strands. It is commonly used as a strengthener or binder and can be multi layered. It is used in a variety of industries for general fibreglass manufacturing and mould building.
Not recommended for epoxy
This chop strand has an emulsifier that is designed to break down with polyester based products. Although you can still effectively use it with epoxy it is not recommended due to the amount of resin required to fully saturate the mat.
