Textile Composite Materials A review
Textiles have a lot to do in the manufacturing of composite materials.
The challenge is -how to -make a textile preform that suits a special
composite material manufacture for a specific requirement of
applications which is composed of too many areas. The high
performance materials like glass. Carbon and aramid fibres can be
used in textile composites manufacturing being made in different
structures and preforms to give the most popular properties. They can
be used separately or in a combination to provide the optimum or
even the most acceptable balance of properties dealing with strength
and stiffness through the fibre axis or in different directions
according to their end – use. The matrices should also be selected
carefully to suit the requirement of the end-use of the composite and
their life time should be put into account. Since composites can be
made to suit any application by tailoring their properties, textile
preforms with different structures can be produced as a raw material,
with the most popular properties being guaranteed in the first steps of design of the preform. Natural fibres can also be to used to make
composite materials making benefit from their different properties,
with specified matrix materials of synthetic or natural origin.
