About the products we received (Source: TeXtreme):

Spread Tow Carbon Fibre
TeXtreme® Spread Tow Fabrics are produced by interlacing Spread Tow Tapes of desired fibers to obtain a virtually crimp-less fabric with straight orientation of fibers. The result is a unique reinforcement with the mechanical performance of a cross plied UD and the ease of handling of a fabric.

Spread Town Carbon Fibre Tape
TeXtreme® Spread Tow Tapes are produced by spreading tows of desired fiber type into UD tapes of certain areal weight and width. The spreading of tows enables producing UD tapes of very low areal weight while maintaining consistency of width.
