Technical fabrics and unidirectionnals

Fibres Recherche Développement - FRD

Description :
Biaxials, or woven fabrics, are assemblies of perpendicular yarns or rovings with specific weave patterns. Their structures determine their mechanical performances in the two directions: 0° and 90°. Unidirectionals are suitable for end-uses where mechanical stresses are applied in one major direction. Fibres, rovings or yarns are lined up and stitch-bonded together or assembled by perpendicularly woven yarns.
