Biotex Flax 150g/m² Unidirectional Tape

High performance unidirectional tape for automotive, sporting goods and decorative applications

Biotex Flax provides high levels of performance, coupled with the ease of processing normally associated with glass and carbon-reinforced materials. These highly aligned unidirectional tapes made direct from fibre offer a step change in performance for unit cost, especially when used as part of a multi-layer or hybrid layup, whilst providing the combination of sustainability, performance and processability associated with the Biotex range. Compared to glass fibre composites, Biotex Flax offers reduced weight, improved environmental impact, vibration damping, similar specific stiffness and safer handling.

Biotex Flax is also 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 150g/m² Unidirectional Tape is typically used for high-performance applications in sporting goods, automotive and general purpose components whilst offering an excellent cost to performance ratio.

Processing

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

Autoclave, Infusion, Prepreg, RTM
