Unidirectional Reinforcement Tape aids composite parts formation.

DiscoTape(TM) - discontinuous, unidirectional preimpregnated reinforcement tape (unitape) - can stretch up to 30% to form complex shapes. Used in formation of composite parts with complex curvatures normally precluding use of unitape without cutting and darting, product can be made with glass or carbon fiber prepregged with epoxy resins or thermoplastics. Mechanical testing shows knockdown of 0° tensile strength while interlaminar shear and in-plane shear remain relatively consistent.
