2 – 6” (2 – 15cm) Unidirectional Fibers
(2mm diameter, pre-impregnated with pink resin)
Denture repairs; Various other acrylic reinforcements
UD fibers are the most resistant of the stranded materials (UD, braid, tape), but are somewhat less pliable and more difficult to place into certain shapes, such as a loop. They are recommended when maximum resistance and reinforcement is preferred. They are easily split lengthwise with a blade to obtain narrower sections.
