Designed to decrease mass and lay up fabrication time of laminations whilst increasing strength and rigidity, the Glassfibre Braided Sleeving provides increased part performance, decreased manufacturing time and a more cost effective solution to practitioner’s laminating needs.
Braided fiberglass is a much better choice over knitted fiberglass/nylon products for reinforcing Prosthetic sockets. You can fabricate sockets that are much stiffer, thinner and lighter than with knitted stockinette.
Glassfibre braided sleeving produces sockets that are just as strong as those made with carbon fiber with similar layups, but much lighter and stiffer than when using knitted tubular reinforcement products.
Using fiberglass braid for the outer reinforcement layer of your socket allows you to choose whatever color pigment you need for your resin. (i.e. a hybrid layup using a combination of carbon and fiberglass braid).
