Multiaxial Fabrics


Multiaxial technology enables reinforcement fibres to be laid at angles between 30º and 60º (+/- 45º is most common). Further, these angled fibres can be added to the standard 0º/90º construction in various combinations.

Multiaxial fabrics are ideal for heavy weight constructions in which the high weight of the fabrics, together with the ability to orientate the fibre at different angles, enables fewer layers to be used. Other fibres, including Kevlar®, can be produced to order.

PRF offers a wide range of multiaxial fabrics on stock, or varying fabrics, weights and constructions.
