Chopped Strand Mat
Reinforcement structure in which short lengths of glass fibre tows, held together by an emulsion or powder binding agent, are dispersed in random directions within a single plane.
- Note: 1 to entry: Chopped strand mat is not to be confused with chopped roving. The latter may not be in mat form and may be loose rovings from a chopper gun.
