The inherent advantage of using a ShapeTex preform is that it no fibre is wasted. The preform is made straight from the bobbin.
Other processes that use woven or non-woven fabrics need to be cut to size and positioned accurately before they can be consolidated..
A ShapeTex preform is made to the exact size of the part, with no waste, and consolidated with little further processing.
This “straight from the bobbin” approach offers a significant cost saving.
