Abstract: Composites with reinforcing textile fibers are defined as textile composites. Textile composite materials find their use in a range of commercial products thanks to their most important properties, which is the achievement of characteristics that exceed the characteristics of individual constitutive phases. The properties of the composite material depends on the properties of the constitutive phases, their proportions, the reinforcement geometry and the adhesion between the reinforcement and the matrix. Textile reinforced composites have been shown to be competitive materials thanks to certain advantages, in addition to their strength (as a result of the presence of fiber or fibrous structure) and their unique ability to transmit the load (which makes it possible to polymer matrix). The properties of the textile composites are anisotropic and non-homogeneous, and therefore the parameters that control the mechanical properties depend primarily of the fiber reinforcement, generally of the fibers structure and their properties, orientation of the fibers, content of the fibers, etc. This paper presents an overview of the types of textile structure that are most often used as reinforcement in the composite industry. Three main synthetic fibers used in textile composites are analyzed: glass, aramid and carbon. Key words: textile composite, textile preforms, synthetic fibers, 3D fabrics.
