“For the first time, we now have a product that is lightweight and offers better mechanical properties than traditional 1K woven carbon fabrics,” says Trey Sawtelle, Co-President of Vectorply Corporation.

Vectorply introduces the lightest weight double bias carbon fabric to the market.
The C-BX 0300 (100 gsm) is our newest product in the VectorUltra line of reinforcements.

“For the first time, we now have a product that is lightweight and offers better mechanical properties than traditional 1K woven carbon fabrics,” says Trey Sawtelle, Co-President of Vectorply Corporation. “There are many composite markets such as aerospace, automotive, defense, and sporting equipment that can benefit from this new lightweight multiaxial fabric development.”

The breakthrough in the ability to spread carbon fiber tow into very thin layers provides a high performance reinforcement fabric at a lower cost, compared to a 1K carbon woven fabric of comparable weight.


Vectorply is a world leader in the development, manufacturing and distribution of multiaxial composite fabrics. Our products are widely used in Industrial, Marine, Sports & Recreation and Aerospace markets.
