3D FABRIC

 

Cristex has recently introduced 3D fabrics into its range and owing to our fantastic relationship with SAERTEX, we are able to offer a diverse range of unique products.

3D fabric is based on 3 main parts:

N layers of fibre oriented in the 0ᵒ direction
(N+1) layers of fibres in the 90ᵒ and
Z-fibres through vertical, perpendicular to the other layers to bind them
Cristex’s range of 3D fabrics includes Carbon and Glass fabrics, both of which offer excellent properties including:

An increased impact resistance  
Greater strength and no crimping of the fibres
Potential time saving in the laying up process
Increased lamination speeds
3D fabrics are suitable for many applications and are especially compatible in the marine industry; primarily boat construction. With the volume being much greater than standard fabrics, 3D Fabric dramatically reduces layup time and increases infusion speeds while maintaining an improved fracture toughness.

 

 

Cristex offers a large range of products suitable for Infusion Moulding, RTM, RTM Light, VARTM and Compression Moulding. The process of RTM is done using a rigid two-sided mould set that forms both surfaces of the panel. The two sides fit together to produce a mould cavity. A key feature of resin transfer moulding is that the reinforcement materials are placed in the cavity and closed prior to the introduction of matrix material. Resin transfer moulding includes numerous variations which differ in the mechanics of how the resin is introduced to the reinforcement in the mould cavity.
