Re: 2 Oz Glass
Posted by Mac on Mar 22, 2005
I've been using 2oz fiberglass on my two decks. I figure the trade off between weight and protection works out pretty well. I banged away at my first deck all last summer and scared-up the varnish pretty well, but I don't see any dents.
The 2 oz is a dream to work with. It behaves like silk, wets out very easily with a squeegee and fills with just one extra coat.
I believe that decks should be glassed, as plain epoxy is just as fragile as varnish. I guess the decision remains how thick the cloth should be, and that will have to be based on planned usage.
Now everyone get set to answer my next question which follows.
