I believe that was a corning 22oz. That is the best looking product I have seen. Easiest to work with also.
Good wet out, very stiff before layup and did not fragment and turn to wisps of shit like much of the other 22oz out there.
Very consistent weave with no blems.
If we could get that stuff every time that would be ideal.
I would pay a premium for it.

I've used 4 different brands of triax and the Owens Corning is by far my favorite for the reasons MM listed. It is definitely the easiest to use.

Any news on this topic? I have been using the stuff from fiberglass supply. I like the glass with the exception of the inconsistency of the fibers. I use a clear topsheet over pigmented resin and this really accentuates the voids in the very big strands. I would love a resource for some consistent, smooth triaxial glass. Thanks!
