Gurit Carbon Fiber Unidrectional Unitex Reinforcement Fabrics have all structural fibers running in a single direction, at 0°, where local reinforcement or optimum mechanical properties are required. These 12k carbon fiber fabrics feature unidirectional Unitex for excellent balance of handling properties.
Carbon fiber is great for providing strength, while adding minimal weight, and is compatible with epoxy, polyester, and vinyl ester resins.
All fabrics are 20 inches wide, and are sold by the yard. Choose from 6 oz., 12 oz., and 12 oz. optimized to allow greater resin penetration during infusion processes.

Does unidirectional have nylon strip glued in to keep it from coming apart when cutting and handling?
No, it is just stitched.

I just watched one of your videos on making a hard top you put s glass over carbon I have been taught that is not a good idea because of difference in flex that will cause delamination
So far so good after 3 years! I would not be surprised if that's the case in most circumstances. The S glass is only on the top side if I remember correctly, as the underside skin is clear coated carbon twill and a carbon/kevlar layer up against the foam core. The frame is really overkill for that setup too, it's incredibly rigid even in a seaway.
