PERFORM IN DEMANDING APPLICATIONS
M723A chopped strand mat represents an ideal solution for demanding applications requiring good surface finish and exceptional mechanical properties, in hand lay-up or closed mold processes.TALK TO AN EXPERT
Very good glass bonding provides excellent dry handling characteristics and minimized fiber shedding during molding process.
Fast wetting and quick air release help reducing the labor required to roll out the part. <br> Exceptional wet tensile strength perfectly fits wet and carrying process.
Optimized product design allows good surface finish and smooth surface behind gelcoat while providing the final part with exceptional tensile and flexural performances.
Compared to standard E-glass, Advantex® glass helps with enhanced service life in applications facing corrosion.
M723A mat is designed for hand lay-up or closed mold processes with polyester, vinyl ester and DCPD resin systems. Applications include boat hulls, automated matched metal die closed molding of automotive load floors, and lamination for RV and truck flat panels. (Image copyright Mooncaz / shutterstock.com.

Ideal conditions are at a temperature between 10°C and 35°C and a relative humidity between 35% and 85%. The glass fiber products must remain in their original packaging material until the point of usage. If the storage temperature is below 15°C, it is recommended that the product be stored in the workshop, within its original packaging, at least 24 hours prior to use to help prevent condensation. The packaging is not waterproof. Be sure to protect the product from the weather and other sources of water. When stored properly, the product can be used up to 2 years from the date of manufacture, and retesting is advised after 1 year from the initial production date to insure optimum performance.</p>
