Woven Fabrics

Gateway Composites offers woven fabric constructions in a variety of patterns to meet both visual and performance applications. From satin patterns to complex designs, we have the capabilities to create custom patterns from your team’s in-house fiber designs that can be tailored to specific applications.

WOVEN FEATURES

  • Excellent Mechanical Properties
  • Excellent standards for aesthetic requirements
  • Consistent quality
  • Ability to be designed as per application needs
Gateway Composites: Plain Weave

PLAIN WEAVE

Fibers are interlocked in an alternating pattern over and under each other. Plain weave fabrics have good stability and are ideally suited for flat panels and minimal contour radius.

Gateway Composites: Twill Weave

TWILL WEAVE

Twills are available in 2×2, 3×3, and 4×4 twill weaves. The diagonal rib, characterizes the weave. Each tow warp end floats over two or more picks. Twills are very pliable and have excellent drape while maintaining stability.

Gateway Composites: Satin Weave

SATIN WEAVE

Satin weaves are typically available in four, five, or eight harness satin. The satin weaves do not intersect at every tow. Tows will float over several intersections and interlock under one. Satin weaves are easily draped to conform to difficult parts.

Gateway Composites: Basket Weave

BASKET WEAVE

A variation of the plain weaves, the multiple warp ends fill tows of yarn and are woven together while being alternately interlocked over and under each other to make heavy fabrics.

Unidirectional Fabrics

Unidirectional fabrics are high performance, non-woven fabrics whose fibers run in a single direction. This product is designed to concentrate the density for maximum longitudinal tensile potential since there is no cross-section weave. This makes it easy to overlap the product at varying angle orientations to achieve strength without sacrificing stiffness.

This product is ideal for applications where front-to-back strength is needed, such as on boats and airplanes.

UNIDIRECTIONAL FEATURES

  • Zero and near zero crimp fabrics
  • Build Composites with directional property performance
  • Varying weights per application needs

The unidirectional fabric consists of continuous fibers in the warp or 0° direction. Unidirectional fabrics offer the ability to place fiber in the component exactly where it is critical, and in the optimum quantity. Unidirectional fibers are straight and uncrimped resulting in the highest possible yield of properties from a fabric in composite component construction. Well suited for Alkali and chemical corrosion resistance of various building surfaces (piers, foundation walls, bridges, tunnels).
