Fibers, Fabrics, and Reinforcements
This article addresses the types, properties, forms, and applications of fibers that are available for use in fiber-reinforced polymeric matrix composites, including glass, graphite, carbon, aramid, boron, silicon carbide, ceramic, continuous oxide and discontinuous oxide fibers. It describes the functions, types, and chemical composition of fiber sizing agents. The article discusses the styles, properties, applications, and weaving methods of unidirectional, two-directional and multidirectionally reinforced fabrics. The article also reviews the use of prepreg resins in aerospace and lower performance applications.
