Compare Cloth Fabric Weights

Look itís probably a stupid question but____


Does any one have any idea of where to find a spreadsheet or tables to compare cloth/fabric weights between the various types of composite materials, i.e. if I wanted to replace one layer of 600g biaxial e-glass with an equivalent carbon fibre layer where am I going to find the data; or same for swapping into Kevlar or Basalt.


Please note Iím not talking about a table of each material weight compared together, they donít necessarily have to be compared together as I can work out the tensile strength, youngís modulus, compression strength, etc later and make an over engineering decision on the various sub factors for the given situation.


But I canít seem to find any tables to allow me to swap in and out exotic fibres for specific gain in certain qualities (flexural strength, impact strength, etc) while maintaining original engineered strengths.


Maybe Iím stupid but sometimes I just canít find the right words for GOOGLE to get the desired result


Help I'm drowning in GOOGLE!


Kindest Regards To All
