In this paper impact resistance is a key parameter for composite materials. Composite structures can experience impact loads either accidentally in the designed life or in an anticipated hostile service environment. That is why the manufacturing technology is very important. For materials manufacture were established: the type of polymer matrix, the types of fabrics and additives which will be used to improve impact resistance and also analysis of mechanical properties of formed composite materials (bending and tensile tests). Knowledge of the mechanical properties of polymeric materials is necessary in all areas of their applicability. Thus, rigidity and mechanical strength are key properties for most applications in which polymeric matrix composites are used.
