CNT/CNF grown on fabric can be later used to produce the composite plates through resin transfer molding or autoclave methods. Since the CNT/CNFs on the fabric will not cause a problem like increasing resin viscosity, they will clearly show a more homogenous distribution. By growing CNT/CNFs on fabric, it is possible to reach high ratios like 10%. However, potential problems during production of composite at high CNT/CNF ratios using such a technique remain unknown.
