What is "Composite Fabric" - Definition & Explanation

In performance garments, an engineered fabric made from two or more components. One component is often a strong fiber such as fiberglass, KevlarŪ, or carbon fiber that gives the material its tensile strength, while another component (often called a matrix) is often a resin, such as polyester or epoxy that binds the fibers together.
