All reinforcement fabrics can be constructed of homogenous reinforcing fibers or tailored hybrid fiber. GBRF’s uni-directionally oriented fabrics consist of Carbon, Aramid, S2 or E glass homogeneous or Hybrid warp fibers:HMFHMF provides a proprietary thermoplastic hot-melt fill yarn woven over and under warp yarns and is thermally bonded to warp fibers. AncarefAncaref is a uni-directionally oriented fabric having no-crimp and a proprietary thermoplastic web thermally surface-bonded to warp fibers. UnifiberUnifiber is a uni-directionally oriented fabric having no-crimp and a proprietary thermoplastic yarn adhesively attached to warp fibers. HMF products are available up to 60″ (1520mm) wide.Ancaref and Unifiber products are available up to 24″ (610mm) wide.
