help me identify this glass

Post by deedee » Sat Jul 18, 2020 12:34 pm

I am considering using this to cover my topsides and deck. i have alot of it at about 48" wide .. enough to cover everything. it wets out nicely. is it worth using to cover with? i am just looking for protection from the elements. it will be primed and painted as well.. as well as nonskid on the deck.

thanks

It looks like 6oz to me. Will be fine for covering the deck. All you need is a bit of stiffness and a bit of protection for dropping heavy shit on the deck. The OD18 has plenty of support underneath with the stringers and bulkheads.

I would say it is a weave too!

Ditto. Looks like 6 oz.

Makes a crappy nonskid. It will wear too fast then delam from the substrate and get chalked by the sun. Needs a nonskid paint.
