Woven Roving

Last updated: September 16, 2017

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.
