Fabrics

Carbon fiber fabrics can be divided, depending on the type of weft, in three main categories: twill, plain and satin. Twill’s are usually provided with a far superior drapability compared to plain ones, while the latters are slightly more resistant and less sensitive during the drawing up, as it reduces the risk of overripe during positioning. The second difference between fabrics is their weight in grams, which corresponds to the specific weight of one square meter of that particular fabric. The last difference is the number of filaments which compose the single fiber of the fabric, usually indicated by a K value. Fabrics with an high K value and low basis weight (spread tow fiber) have more flat and wide fibers, while heavier ones have thicker but narrow.
