UNIDIRECTIONAL

-          UD both 0  and 90ᵒ (other weave directions are available on request) 

UD fabric constructions are where the majority of fibres run in one direction typically 0˚ or 90˚ and a small amount of fibres run in an alternate direction to hold the primary fibres in position.

 

Woven UD Fabrics

The current range of Woven UD Fabrics are available in Glass Fibre, Carbon Fibre and Aramid Fibre and available in a standard range from 155g to 1000g (Glass Fibre) and 80g to 1000g (Carbon Fibre) for information on the Woven UD Aramid Fabrics please contact the team at Cristex.

Within the range of Woven UD Fabrics there are a number of styles which can be supplied with Thermally Bonded weft yarns sold under the description of TFX. Fabrics with Thermally Bonded weft yarns provides the user with a highly stable fabric which can be easily cut whilst preventing fraying.

Non Crimp Fabrics (NCF’S)

UD’s are layers of fibres typically 0˚ or 90˚ stitched to various supporting materials e.g. Veils, CSM, or simply fibres at alternate angles such as 0˚ or 90˚

The advantages of Stitched NCF’s are improved mechanical properties, higher areal weights (upto 2,000g per square meter and beyond), easier to cut and handle than a typical Woven UD. Many customers have found that stitched UD’s perform better in Infusion processes where Resin will flow more easily through the various layers.

The range of Glass NCF’s starts at around 300g and goes beyond 2000g.

Carbon Fibre typically is from 150g to 1200g.
