ZOLTEK Multi-Directional Fabric

ZOLTEK Multi-Directional Fabrics are produced from our ZOLTEK PX35 continuous carbon fiber tow. ZOLTEK utilizes unique fiber spreading techniques to obtain a wide range of Multi-Directional fabric weights for a varied set of composite part applications. A quick composite part build-up is cost effectively achieved with our diverse weight range of low-cost carbon fabric products. ZOLTEK Multi-Directional Fabrics drapable fabric construction is also ideal for complex shape preforms. Pillar and Tricot stitching patterns are available as needed.

Applications: Automotive, marine, Aircraft, Infrastructure
Recommended Use: Body Panels (Interior/Exterior), Components/Undercarriage, Reinforcement
