High performance fabric for automotive, sporting goods and decorative applications

P1040514 Biotex Flax 400 2x2 Twill

Biotex Flax provides high levels of performance, coupled with the ease of processing normally associated with glass-reinforced materials. The materials use a unique twistless technology to provide a combination of sustainability, performance and processability not previously seen in composites. Compared to glass fibre composites, Biotex Flax offers reduced weight, improved environmental impact, vibration damping, similar specific stiffness and safer handling.

Biotex Flax 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.

Biotex Flax 400g/m² 2×2 Twill fabric is typically used for semi-structural and decorative components in applications such as sporting goods, consumer goods and automotive interiors.

Processing

Typical processes for Biotex Flax fabrics include vacuum infusion or resin transfer moulding using either standard resins or bio-based resins. The fabrics can also be pre-pregged, and processing is carried out in the same way as glass fibre.
