Multi-axial reinforcement fabrics are made up of several plies of parallel fibres, which can be laid in different orientations. The individual layers are then stitched together with a polyester thread to form a single ‘multi-axial reinforcement fabric which can be cut shaped and placed dry into a mould in the exact position needed for the finished part. Being stitched, a multi-axial fabric can be cut to shape and handled without falling apart and it has excellent in-mould drape ability for accurate dry lay-up.
Fibreglass roving is laid down in the 0° or 90° axis and is held parallel by lightweight stitching. This stitching is non-structural. This fabric is ideal to be used on straight flat laminates.
