Hello, does anyone have any 1/32" G10 they could weigh for me? But any other thickness would work as well.
Thanks!

Aerospace Composite Products list several fiberglass thickneses and weights. The weight does not always increase linearly with thickness since the manufacturer can use different cloth weights and plies and per centage epoxy in their layup to get the desired mechanical properties.

A 0.030" thick layup would likely weigh between 114g to 144g per square foot based on the following data.

G10 has a density of .072 Lb./cubic inch. (2.0 g/cc)

calculate the volume of material you're using.
