For lightweighting, the use of Biotex Flax to replace glass reinforcements has been shown to reduce weight, whilst significantly improving the NVH performance of interior panels. Biotex Flax can be processed in the same way as CFM under vacuum infusion or RTM or can provided in prepreg as either Evopreg EPC or PFC format.
Where fire-resistance is needed, Evopreg PFC prepregs are designed to offer high mechanical and fire performance for mass transport applications, and are available in different weights to suit various applications. The materials offer a combination of light weight, high mechanical properties, excellent fire retardant properties and low environmental impact. The prepregs can be consolidated by vacuum bagging, autoclave or press moulding and are designed for a range of applications in mass transport. Importantly, the materials do not have the health risks associated with phenolic processing, as they have significantly reduced VOC emissions.
