Oxeon AB (Borås, Sweden) has expanded its line of TeXtreme spread-tow fabrics with the launch of its +α/-β variants. The first product launched in the series of variants is a +45°/-45° version. The company’s technology enables continuous-length production of novel fabrics by interlacing two sets of spread tow tapes at different angles, including, eventually, +30°/-60°, +50°/-25°, and others. These fabrics are designed to complement the existing 0°/90° version. Reported benefits of spread-tow fabrics include improved mechanical performance, weight-saving possibilities, and good handling, flatness and surface smoothness. They are said to eliminate problems associated with symmetric plying of noncrimp and unidirectional fabrics.
