Fiber reiforcement material spec's

Anybody know were to find a listing of specifications (such as tensile strengths, elasticity, etc.) for various weaves and weights of E-glass, S-glass, Carbon, Kevlar, etc. cloths?

I have found various partial listings from some of the suppliers, but I would like to compare several cloths which these suppliers do not carry. Several suppliers don't have any data on the cloths they stock.

I am assuming that the various weaves and weights available are standardized and that each manufacturer of cloth is using the same chemical makeup of glass and producing cloth with basicaly the same specifications. They may all be from one manufacturer for all I know.

There should be a book or something available for engineering type data.
