When deciding upon the right reinforcement material to use in a new composite component, it can be tempting to focus solely on the fibre type (i.e. glass, carbon, natural fibre etc.). However, the way in which the reinforcement fibres are arranged – the fibre format – can have at least the same impact on the final component properties as the type of fibres chosen.

Woven textiles are used extensively to produce composite materials; they are made into prepregs, infused with resins or even have resins applied with a bucket and a brush. These textiles are produced from yarn, strands or filaments by weaving “weft” or “fill” at 90 degrees to the “warp” at 0-degree direction.
