Balanced fabrics are widely used in combination with thermosetting resins (matrix) for the production of high strength composites that combine the strengths and overcome the weaknesses of the two or more components. All Kevlar ® balanced fabrics can be divided according to the type of texture into three main macro-categories: textured fabrics twill, plain and satin. The twill are normally provided with an upper drapability compared to plain fabrics while the latter are slightly more resistant and appear to be less sensitive during the drawing up, by lowering the risk of overripe during positioning. The second difference between the tissues is the areal weight, corresponding to the specific weight of a square meter of that particular fabric.
