Lighter Stiffer Tougher
Features and Benefits
When reviewing tensile strength ply direction is important.
Because PSI or Mpa is measured per "amount of material", use those numbers and the quantity of material going each way to get part strength.
Unidirectional Fiber Glass PET has 1,000 Mpa or 145,000psi tensile strength
A 4 ply layup that was 0 deg and 90 deg you would have:
0 deg 2 plies @.009" thick, or .018" thickness material, calculated to strength using 1000Mpa.
90 deg 2 plies @.009" thick, or .018" thickness material, calculated to strength using 1000Mpa.
