Niche Vehicle and Motorsport
Composites Evolution’s Biotex Flax and Evopreg prepregs can be used the production of components in low-volume niche and motorsport vehicles.
Our range of products can be used by vehicle designers and components manufacturers to give a number of benefits:
- Unique aesthetic appearance for interior trim
- Improved surface finish
- Reduced weight and cost compared to glass fibre components
- Enhanced damping of carbon fibre components, reducing NVH issues whilst retaining lightweight (see section on hybrids)
- Improved environmental credentials when utilising natural fibre reinforcements
Also by replacing some of the carbon in a laminate with flax, hybrid structures can be created with lower weight, cost, NVH and environmental impact. Applications include body panels, secondary structures and interior components.
We can supply this as a fabric for infusion, or we can also supply this as a prepreg as Evopreg EPC for components and Evopreg EPT for tooling applications.
