Same as Volan Finish; Also known as CHROME FINISH due to presence of chromium. Applied to glass fibers to give good bonding to polyester and epoxy resins. A sizing or finish applied to fiberglass fabric during the manufacturing process. If used with no pigment, volan cloth will appear to have a slight greenish tint; volan boards typically have a cut lap as a free lap would show and be unattractive. Standard Volan finish is compatible with polyester, vinyl ester and epoxy resins. Volan laminates tend to dent rather than crack.
