Fiberglass E-Glass Fabric Sleeve 0.5"/12.7mm Diameter 11.5oz 389gsm. This fabric is woven into a tube/sleeve so you can easily make straight or curved pipes with no seams. These sleeves will expand in diameter if the ends are pushed together and also will decrease in diameter if pulled from both ends. This 0.5"/12.7mm Diameter sleeve will have estimated range of 0.14"-0.6"(3.55mm-15.24mm) Diameter. This sleeving uses a light weight fiberglass yarn which will yield a lighter and easier to work with sleeve. Thickness is 0.012"/0.3mm. .0075 lbs per foot.
To harden the raw fabric into a usable form, you will need the appropriate resin or epoxy for your project.
Woven Biaxial Sleeves can contract and expand when pulled or pushed resulting in a smaller diameter and longer length or a larger diameter and shorter length. As a result of this it is very difficult to measure woven sleeves by length when cutting. Measuring by length can result in a final cut length off by +/- 25% or more. To account for this problem we weigh all our sleeves and cut based on the weight not the length. This will result in a more accurate final cut length. Still using this method, lengths may be off by +/- 5%.
This item is sold by the linear yard (verified by weight). Each qty will yield a 36" long piece. If you order more than one, we will leave the sleeve in a continuous piece.
