Cristex offers a range of Hybrid Woven and multi-layer fabrics with weave patterns such as plain, twill or satin. The most common Hybrid combinations will typically be,
Carbon / Aramid – The high impact resistance and tensile strength of the Aramid Fibre combined with a high compressive and tensile strength of Carbon. Both fibres have low density but relatively high cost.
Glass / Aramid – The low density, high impact resistance and tensile strength of Aramid Fibre combined with the good compressive and tensile strength of Glass, coupled with its lower cost.
Carbon / Glass – Carbon Fibre contributes high tensile compressive strength and stiffness and reduces the density, while Glass reduces the cost.
