Unidirectional

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

The Benefits

  • Improved mechanical properties
  • Higher areal weights (up to 2,000g per square meter and beyond)
  • Easy to cut and handle
  • Enhanced performance in infusion processes where resin will flow more easily through the various layers
