Fabric Lamination Code

Fabric Lamination Code

Fabric Lamination Code

Hi, I compared the stacking sequence between unitape and fabric in the picture... It looks the same in terms of number of plies...my understanding about fabric is woven bidirectional fibers, if it is (0)ply, it means 0/90 in one ply;if it is (45),it means +/-45 in one ply.

But the table seems 0/90 for fabric is for two plies...

RE: Fabric Lamination Code

The fabric table defines the warp fiber direction for each ply.

RE: Fabric Lamination Code

Isn't it warp and fill directions giving similar properties? Is there any significant impact with 0 warp or 90 warp?

Thank you so much!

RE: Fabric Lamination Code

For most weaves, warp and fill directions have similar properties.

RE: Fabric Lamination Code

In many fabrics the warp and weft properties are perfectly balanced. In real life, there are some systematic, non-random differences in any given roll of material. To get the best uniformity in laminate properties, it would best to alternate warp direction in x and y directions. This can start to get complicated, however. Particularly, if you are using satin weave fabrics where there is also a warp face and a weft face to consider, as well.

RE: Fabric Lamination Code

Looks like the headings and tables are mismatched.

RE: Fabric Lamination Code

Ng - nope, they look ok. What specifically is an issue you see?

RE: Fabric Lamination Code

My mistake, it was too early in the morning.
