TX-45 was introduced by A&P as a standard product in early 2017. TX-45 is a low cost, continuous 45° fabric with uniform fiber architecture. It is a +/-45° 193 gsm 2x2 twill delivered on carrier paper enabling easy handling and consistent fiber orientation. TX-45 was developed for an aerospace customer interested in a substitute for a +/-45 plain weave prepreg. The cost & time savings enabled by TX-45 and its superior mechanical performance has attracted the attention of many prepreggers and end users.
