Airtech Introduces Triaxial Fabrics for Tooling

Airtech Advanced Materials' TMGC-TX triaxial carbon fibre fabrics have been developed for use with Airtech Toolfusion resins and are said to deliver lower cost composite moulds with superior performance.

The quasi-isotropic fabrics are balanced in every layer, avoiding the need for orientation of individual plies in the laminate stack. TMGC-TX Fabrics are available in a selection of light, medium, and heavy weight fabrics. The heavy weight fabrics allow thick laminates to be built in fewer layers, with laminate quality suitable for high quality post machining.

Benefits of the fabrics are said to include:

  • balanced fabrics do not require ply orientation, reducing lay-up times dramatically;
  • simplified ply patterns reduces material waste to a minimum;
  • engineered for Toolfusion for ease of infusion and high quality tooling laminates.
