Barracuda Aluminized Fiberglass

You’ve never seen metal move quite like this!
By “this” we’re referring to Barracuda® – BGF’s new aluminized glass fabric. Simply put, Barracuda® is like moldable steel.  It boasts the look of metal with the functionality of traditional high performance fabrics. A marriage of style and function, this classy fabric is poised to revolutionize products that demand aesthetic appeal and strength – everything from sporting goods to luggage, motorcycle helmets to kitchen appliances, dashboards to umbrella shafts – and we’re coming up with new applications every day.

The distinctive appearance of Barracuda® is achieved through a unique finishing process designed specifically for composite applications. When combined with the proper resin, products made with Barracuda® emulate the silver sheen of 3-D steel. But good looks are only half the story. Beneath the surface, Barracuda® offers the same high-performance characteristics of traditional fiberglass fabrics: it’s strong, durable, lightweight and easily moldable.
