I need your help!


Guys, I'm looking for a highly unbalance 4.5 ounce glass fabric. I need one direction to be about 50% fiber yeild of the other. It doesn't matter whether the warp or the fill direction has the higher yield as long as the fabric is 39" wide or wider.

I've searched and searched but haven't found anything. Right now I using two layers of 2113 to accomplish this. I'd really like to just have to mess with one layer if I could.

I wonder if there is an index number for such a cloth? I do not have my HexCel PDF with me to check.

Adam-
Does it need to be a fabric? A stitched uni-web may make sense. check out anchor web at Sciart.ca and tell me if that could work. http://www.sciart.ca/uni_directionals.htm
maybe use one balanced weave fabric and add a uni-web in one direction?

Adam,

Not sure this is what you mean, but have a look at these proposals:
http://www.hexcel.com/Resources/Data...heets/4797.pdf
http://www.hexcel.com/Resources/Data...heets/1557.pdf
http://www.hexcel.com/Resources/Data...heets/1579.pdf

The 1557 can be found at:
Thayercraft: http://thayercraft.com/1557.htm
ACP: http://www.acpsales.com/5.4-oz.-Fabr...-30-Weave.html

The other two I can't find.

Thanks for all the input guys.

I've got a system that works but I'm just looking to reduce the labor a bit. I'm trying to make two steps into one.

That 1557 is soooooooooo close but a pinch overweight. I'll have to do a little calculating to see how much of difference it will make.
