Definition - What does Woven Roving mean?
A woven roving is a type of fabric material consisting of glass fibers that are woven in a specific pattern for the purpose of providing high strength when used to reinforce a coating or other composite system. This fabric becomes heavier as the interlacing between the various glass fibers are joined together during its production.
Woven roving fabrics are compatible with a wide range of resin systems.
Corrosionpedia explains Woven Roving
Characteristics that make woven roving materials or fabrics ideal for covering corrosion-prone materials include:
- Complex shapes can be draped using woven roving fabric material.
- Available in a variety of form factors and finishes for a variety of purposes.
- Useful for laminating open mold fiberglass parts where strength and laminate bulk is required.
- Increases the flexibility and strength of laminate products.
- Ideal for applications where strength is increased by layering up the material.
- Provides good drapeability.
- Cost effective.
