Resin-Coated Extensible Heat-set Silicone Rubber Coated Fiberglass Fabric (5)

Like most knitted fabrics, silicone rubber coated fiberglass fabric knits tend to curl or fray at a cut edge as the yarns are severed and adjacent loops unravel. When a segment of yarn is removed from such a fabric and allowed to relax, it remains in the new position in which it is placed. Fraying and raveling produce unsightly ends and, in the case of an orthopedic cast, frayed ends may interfere with the formation of a smooth cast, and loose, frayed ends may be sharp and irritating. Accordingly, frayed edges are considered a distinct disadvantage in orthopedic casting tapes.
