The glass fibre veil is bound by a modified Styrene resin which is rapidly soluble in Styrene resin systems. Designed to be used as a surfacing tissue for GRP laminates
Surfacing veils strengthen the resin-rich gel coat surface of glass fibre reinforced plastic components, creating a strong bond with the underlying laminate and enhancing surface appearance by masking the reinforcing fibre pattern. Surfacing veils also isolate the substrate fibres from exposure to corrosion, abrasion and moisture, contributing to the structural integrity of the total composite.
Used to cover coarse surfaces of chopped strand mat and other GRP products, improves finish on completed laminate when used on last layer
May be used as a barrier between layer of gelcoat surface and csm to prevent print through
