Textile composite materials present a class of advanced materials reinforced with textile preforms used for primary structural applications. Using the unique combination of light weight, elasticity, strength and toughness, the textile structures have long been recognized as an attractive reinforcement component for production of different types of composite materials for various applications. The aim of this study is to investigate the influence of different types of two - dimensional textile structure as a reinforcing component on mechanical properties of composite materials. For that purpose, E-glass fabric/epoxy resin prepress have been fabricated by using the hand lay-up technique and used in the production of laminated composite samples with help of compression technology. Flexural properties of manufactured samples were determined with help of three-point bending test in accordance with the procedure described in the standard EN ISO 14125. Comparison between results of specimens manufactured at same technological parameters, but from textile fabric with different weave pattern shown that all samples tested at MD direction had performed better flexural properties in comparison to the samples tested at CD direction.
