Plain Weave Fiberglass Fabric

Fiberglass Cloth > Weaves
A plain weave fiberglass fabric is where the fill yarn passes over and under one warp yarn and a fill yarn doing the same.  To the right is a microscope shot of style 7500 9.6 oz/sq yd fiberglass cloth.  You can see the two G37 yarn twisted together making the one yarn in both the warp and fill.

Photo to right is a microscopic view of the "Flat" weave style 3733 that uses the G37 1/0 yarn in the warp and fill.  Compare it to the 7533 with the same thread count but having the G75 1/2 yarn where two 1/2 the weight of the G37 yarn are twisted together - The weight of the cloth is essentially the same.
