Re: Fiberglass Mat
Posted by Garland on Feb 28, 2008
I agree with Laszlo that mat has no place on these light craft, but also, as I understand it, there is a binder in mat to hold it together until saturation. This binder is designed to dissolve in polyester resin when it can then be made to confirm to the shape required. The binder won't dissolve readily in epoxy, so it is more difficult to work. I got several yards of mat for use with epoxy before I learned of this.
