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.
