Materials properties Help finding

Hi all,

I am learning to use Abaqus to simulate a 3 point flexural testing.
I have successfully design the setup and the part but now I am having trouble finding the materials properties.

The materials are fibreglass 0/90º and nonwoven polypropylene.
Can anyone tell me where to find the properties for this materials? (not the properties for the composite, just for the materials individually)

Specifically, what I need is:
Fibreglass 0/90º: E1, E2, Nu12, G12, G13, G23 - if I consider as a lamina or D1111, D1122, D2222, D1133, D2233, D3333, D1212, D1313, D2323 if I consider as a orthotropic materialb - (please advise me on what should I use)
Polypropylene nonwoven: Youngs modulus and Poisson ratio (considering as a isotropic material - is this a correct assumption?).

Please have in mind that I am not a physics or engineer, so I probably won´t understand any complicate explanation.
I just need the values, or the formulas to get them.

Hope you can help

Regards from Portugal
