The choice of spreading technique is customised to suit the process and requirements of the fibre in each application. Customisation is often achieved through lab testing at our facility.

Spreading is integrated into processes such as impregnation, in order to enhance the penetration of a material into a substrate.

In other processes, such as Uni-Directional (UD) Spreading, the objective is to achieve a target areal weight so that the material can be integrated into a composite with a tightly controlled fibre content in the composite.
