Was poking around in the garage and found some "Fibatape".

Used it for drywall long ago, and got to thinking that maybe it could work for fiberglass somehow. I personally think the holes are way to large ... which is why it works well with drywall. I wouldn't even think of using it as an actual layer by itself with resin, unless it works, which I highly doubt.

I really don't think it's a good alternative to matt or cloth, but maybe it would work in between layers of matt?

Just looking for ideas.

If you don't know what it is ...

Dry wall joint tape. It doesn't have very much strength at all, the resin just doesn't melt the tape. I have never tried it with epoxy resin though, so maybe that would make a difference . :)

I assumed it would be brittle like drywall.

Ah well, I'll toss it back in the misc. junk section of the garage :p

It just doesn't have any surface to absorb the resin. So the resin just basically sits on top of it. You could use it too make some really cool paint effects though ;) :)

I *could* ... or I could just throw it back in the garage and pray that I have enough matt to get at least a single layer ;)
