Unidry® General Information

UNIPREG® UNIPREG - Fabric


GENERAL CHARACTERISTICS:

Unidry® is a unidirectional carbon fiber dry fabric which can be used in all applications where excellent mechanical and physical properties are required. The main advantages of Unidry® are:

  • All filaments are tensioned and absolutely parallel so the fabric can fully utilize the properties of every single fiber, thereby the composite has excellent physical-mechanical properties.
  • All split filaments are removed.
  • All filaments are strictly parallel, not twisted to the right or to the left.
  • Thickness over the whole fabric’s width is consistent.
  • All the physical parameters have very strict tolerance so the weight, fiber content, thickness, width are very precise.
  • Excellent suitability for structural components.
  • Filaments are constrained by very thin (76 dtex) polyester scrim (3.5 g/m2).
  • The surface of filaments are smooth, therefore Unidry® ribbon is very handy to process.
  • Unidry® ribbon of 600 mm can be divided into 2-6 parts (with gaps between).
  • Packed by one 14-15 kg reel in the box.
