PrimeTex® is a range of carbon fabrics which have been processed for a smooth, closed weave and uniform cosmetic appearance. The fiber tows are spread in both the warp and weft direction for unique aesthetic appeal. PrimeTex® fabrics are more uniform as the filaments in each tow are spread out creating a thinner and more closely woven fabric that provides better mechanicals and less porosity in a composite. It can also be used to lower the mass in a composite where lighter weight is the key characteristic.
- Patented technology with fibers spread in both the warp and weft direction
- Spreading process improves closure factor compared to conventional weaving process
- Weight saving
- Uniform weave and gap-free structure: porosity reduced / less labor for part finishing
- Excellent water tightness when used in honeycomb sandwich structures
