Natural Fibre Reinforcements

Biotex flax reinforcements - a lightweight, sustainable alternative to synthetic fibres

Biotex flax employs unique twistless and low-twist technologies to promote the wetting-out of the natural fibres with resin during moulding. This results in biocomposites with superior processability and performance.



  • Low weight – flax fibres have a typical density of 1,400 kg/m³; this compares favourably with glass fibres (2,500 kg/m³) and carbon fibres (1,800 kg/m³)
  • Inherently vibration damping
  • Low environmental impact
  • Natural aesthetics





Biotex is suitable for standard composite processes including hand lay-up, vacuum infusion, resin transfer moulding and prepregging.



Biotex is typically used for semi-structural and decorative components in applications such as sporting goods, consumer goods and automotive interiors.
