Best Answer

This can also be called, "fish-eye" and it's generally caused by the "kicking time" added to color of the tub and not the fiberglass. Fiberglass when applied needs to be "faired out" (sanded smoothly with fine sand paper so you can run your hand over it and feel no bumps or rough spots.) It's important because it leads to either a good spray job of enamel based paints or a bad job.

Density of fiberglass?

Fiberglass is manufactured in different weights and weaves. The choices seem to be endless, but fiberglass cloth is always listed in terms of weight per square yard. You can readily find 3.7 oz e-glass, which is often referred to as 4 oz fiberglass. You can also find fiberglass in weights of 9 oz and up to 40.5 oz! Fiberglass also comes in woven cloth, chopped strand mat, roving and again the list seems to go on and on. The key to your question, though, would be to look for the weight of the fabric you wanted.
