 The properties of carbon fibers, such as high flexibility, high tensile strength, low weight, high temperature tolerance and low thermal expansion, make them very popular in aerospace, civil engineering, military, and motorsports, along with other competition sports. However, they are relatively expensive when compared to glass fibers. Apart from the common woven fabrics, carbon fibre is also available in non-woven unidirectional material, also known as UD or Uni. The unidirectional material is also used to manufacture Multiaxial Fabrics with multiple layers of UD fibres oriented in different directions and stitched together to form a single reinforcement. The most common is made up of two layers of parallel fibres laid in two orientations, stitched with polyester yarn, called biaxial fabrics with fibres oriented at ±45°, 0° and 90° or other angles. Multiaxials are also known as non crimp fabrics, as they eliminate the weave crimping found in woven fabrics, which has a small but negative impact on the mechanical properties that can be realized from the carbon fibre composite.
