ZOLTEK Uni-Directional Fabric (Stitch-Bonded)

ZOLTEK’s Uni-Directional Fabric (Stitch-Bonded) is produced from our ZOLTEK PX35 50K Continuous Tow Carbon Fiber. In keeping with ZOLTEK’s commitment to providing ideal solutions to a variety of application challenges, this product’s unique fiber spreading techniques enable a wide range of fabric weights and constructions for composite part applications. Specially constructed for enhanced infusibility, ZOLTEK’s Uni-Directional Fabric also allows for a rapid build-up of part thickness. Depending on an application’s unique needs, fabric treatment such as binders can be added to the fabric.
