Biotex Flax/PLA 400g/m² 2×2 Twill
100% bio-derived commingled fabric for consumer goods, sporting goods and decorative applications - (Special Order)
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/PLA fabrics are commingled textiles made from natural flax fibre and polylactic acid (PLA) biopolymer and are suitable for producing fibre-reinforced thermoplastic composite parts. The fabrics are moulded into rigid components by simply applying heat and pressure to melt the thermoplastic, wet-out the flax and consolidate.
Biotex Flax/PLA 400g/m² 2×2 Twill fabric is typically used for semi-structural and decorative components in applications such as sporting goods and consumer products.
Typical processes for Biotex Flax/PLA fabrics include press moulding, vacuum bagging and autoclave.
