Guidance for choosing tapes and fabrics

To ensure good fabric coverage, it's important to allow the same weight of epoxy as the fabric. In other words, if the fabric weighs 200g/m², allow 200g of mixed epoxy per m². In the table below, fabric weights have been converted from g/m² to oz/sq yd for your reference.

Application methods
WEST SYSTEM tapes and fabrics can be applied using two methods: ‘wet’ and ‘dry’. The ‘wet’ method refers to applying the cloth to an epoxy-coated surface before the coating reaches final cure. The ‘dry’ method refers to applying the cloth over a dry surface and then impregnate the glass with epoxy. To find out more about both methods, click here.
