Glass Fiber , carbon fiber and aramid fibers: how to choose the right reinforcement
 July 8, 2022
 
The physical properties of composite materials are dominated by fibers. This means that when resin and fibers are combined, their properties are very similar to those of individual fibers. Test data show that fiber-reinforced materials are the components that carry most of the load. Therefore, fabric selection is critical when designing composite structures.

Begin the process by determining the type of reinforcement needed in the project. Typical manufacturers can choose from three common reinforcement materials: glass fiber, carbon fiber and Kevlar® (aramid fiber). Glass fibers tend to be the general-purpose choice, while carbon fibers offer high stiffness and Kevlar® high abrasion resistance. Keep in mind that fabric types can be combined in laminates to form hybrid stacks with the benefits of more than one material.
