Low cost, low twist yarn for semi-structural applications

P1040517 Biotex Jute 2000tex Yarn

Biotex Jute reinforcements are based on natural jute fibre and are designed for fibre-reinforced polymer composite applications. Jute offers the benefits of premium natural fibres such as Flax, including a favourable stiffness-to-weight ratio, but at a price that rivals glass fibre. Compared to glass fibre composites, Biotex Jute offers reduced weight, improved environmental impact, vibration damping, similar specific stiffness and safer handling.

Biotex Jute is available in a range of yarn weights and fabric constructions. The materials can be processed using standard composites manufacturing techniques and are suitable for semi-structural and decorative applications in a range of sectors, including automotive, sports & leisure, consumer goods and construction.

This 2000tex yarn is typically used for the direct production of parts using pultrusion or filament winding.
