UND flaw


Recommended Posts

The attached photo shows a flaw I just discovered in my UND fiberglass cloth. It appears to be caused by a gap in the cross fibers - they look like they are a bit more closely spaced on one side of the gap. The primary fibers that give the UND its strength appear to be fine. I can't think of any reason not to use it, but I thought I'd post this in case somebody has a different opinion.

Whether or not it's fine, it would bug me. You'll look right at that spot every time you inspect the layup.


I had a line across my UNI that was probably just dirt from the rolling machine. A single line about 1" wide across the width of the glass. It landed squarely in the middle of the outside fuse wall. That layup was one of the finest yet, but has a visible line in it. Perfectly acceptable, but it'll bug me until it's covered with micro.
