Reinforcements


PRF Composite Materials supplies a range of composite reinforcement materials, including Kevlar®, Dyneema®, glass and carbon fabrics, and covers the broad spectrum of textile technologies including woven fabrics and tapes, knitted multiaxials, braids and non-woven technical veils.

Additional fabric processing and finishing facilities are available, including powder coating with epoxy or polyester. Powder coating stabilises the weave, preventing distortion and enables the fabric to be cut without fraying. The thermoplastic powder coating can be used to bond layers together as in manufacturing of preforms for RTM processing. PRF also offer laminating and slitting services for the materials we supply. We can also cut a large range of woven fabric, including multiple layers of ballistic grade Kevlar®, on our CNC cutting machines. Two-dimensional CAD drawings are accepted by email and we nest for optimum material use. Kits are supplied bagged, labelled, to the customer’s requirements, and ready for use.

At the forefront of innovation, PRF can also offer a bespoke service which allows us to develop unique, cutting-edge woven textiles to suit individual customer requirements. We can start this service with an order of just 7m for sampling and testing.
