You are buying 10 yards at a time of Biaxial mat 1708 (+/- 45). it is 50 inches wide. Order as many yards as you like , up to 50 yards. All orders will come in one continuous roll 50 inches wide and as long as you wish..


1708 is made up of 17 ounces of Strands ,stitched at a 45 degree angle, and 8 ounces of chopped strand mat backing. for a total of 25 ounces per square yard.

what is biaxial mat?

Biaxial Fabric is non-woven. It consists of two layers that are stitched together, and instead of laying the strands at a 90 degree angle, they are laying at a 45 degree angle to each other.

1708 is E-glass Biaxial (+/-45) with a 3/4 ounce chopped strand mat backing.

Using Biaxial fiberglass cloth means less resin is necessary.

It also gives you the ability to lay the fibers in the direction you want, and has excellent conforming qualities(it goes around corners well) .

The fabric and the mat work together to make a very strong end product.

Used where strong stiff and smooth laminate with equal strength in two directions is desired. Good wet out, and quick thickness build up. Excellent resin to reinforcement ratio.

this is the lowest price for first quality, factory fresh 1708 biaxial mat.

orders of up to 50 yds can be shipped UPS, larger orders will be shipped truck freight.

    Efficient and tough lay-up

    Posted by M. H. on 24th Jul 2020

    I have been using the 1708 biaxial mat for joints between plywood and to cover polyisocyanurate (rigid, closed-cell foam) for boat construction. It's pretty thirsty stuff, the mat, because it's three layers. But the thing is: it would be the same amount of resin after three separate layers, and this is about 3x as efficient because you are applying the triple-layer matt all at once. Big fan, even though I am not sure I am always laying my strands in the best directions around corners! Thanks, Mike and fiberglasssite.

    1708 biaxial mat

    Posted by Cptn Bob Lindley on 15th Oct 2016

    The mat came rolled on a tube just as promised and wrapped exceptionally well. It arrived undamaged, on time. I used the material to do a deck hatch core repair and found the material easy to work with and a consistent quality throughout. Price was competitive. I was a pleasure to do business with a company that delivered everything they stated. i will definitely use this company in the future.

    Good Stuff

    Posted by Andrew on 24th Aug 2016

    Thick and strong, but still workable enough to make a 90 degree turn. This stuff is thirsty, wetting the material and whatever you at placing it over is a must. There is no pushing resin through this material. Had a couple spots the first time I used it that I was a little light on resin at first when wetting the cloth, it didn't stick to the stringer on my boat very well. But give it plenty of juice and it lays down nice and smooth. Great Price too.

    1708 Bi Ax Mat - always arrives in perfect shape

    Posted by Erik Amato on 20th Jul 2016

    I've been dealing with Mike for all my fiberglass projects and have consumed over a thousand square feet of Bi Ax mat alone with chopped mat and resin. I large orders I've traveled to the Baltimore area to pick things up, and on smaller orders shipments arrive in perfect shape. And as promised-no folding of material, always rolled nice and flat.
