angle-aluminum vs angle-fiberglass


Recommended Posts

Hello all,


Have a simple materials question. I need an 1 foot long section of right-angle aluminum.


Unfortunately, I need a piece that is about 3 1/2 inches on one side and 1 1/2 inches on the other.


Now I know I can find some 1/8" thick 3x3 inch aluminum angle.


However, I was wondering if I couldn't must make mo own out of fiberglass.


If so, in rough figures, about how thick should I make it so that is is equivalent in strength to the 1/8" aluminum angle?


I am confident the flat pieces of the angle-fiberglass will be strong enough.


My concern in in the 90 degree angle part and how strong fiberglass is in that configuration.


Thanks for any and all comments.
