Woven Roving

Woven roving is a bidirectional fabric material made from continuous glass fibers that are woven together into a cloth and interlaced into heavy weight fabrics, providing strength and durability. Woven roving is typically used between layers of mat for strong laminates.

The tensile strength and impact-resistant properties in woven roving lamination can be used to reinforce a coating or other composite system, and makes it ideal for the process of fiberglass boatbuilding.

Boatbuilding with Fiberglass Woven Roving

Woven roving is often used with chopped strand mat (CSM) to reinforce other materials and make repairs. In boatbuilding, the CSM keeps it from being compatible with epoxy. Otherwise, woven roving is compatible with all of the resins on this site. Woven roving is an inexpensive way to quickly laminate large, flat areas for rapid build-up and reinforcement of fiberglass boats.

Some features which make woven roving materials or fabrics ideal for boatbuilding include:

● Woven roving material can be draped into unique complex shapes
● Used for open mold fiberglass parts where additional strength is needed
● Wets out easily
● Increase in flexibility and strength
● Great for repairs or quick buildups
● Cost efficient

Woven roving can be balanced with the same number of rovings in each direction or unbalanced with more rovings in one direction. If extra strength is needed in a different direction, another ply must be added at an angle to the first.

Fabrics need to be oriented so the fiber yarns run parallel to the expected loads. If extra strength is needed in a different direction, another ply must be added at an angle to the first. The most common angles are +/- 45 degrees.
We also have in stock sizes ranging from 10 inch to 60 inch. Please call our office for details.
