Biotex Flax fabrics are high-performance reinforcements based on natural fibres, designed for fibre-reinforced polymer composite applications.
The materials use unique twistless and low-twist technologies, giving a 50% increase in fibre efficiency over conventional twisted yarns, whilst also allowing effective impregnation.
Biotex natural reinforcements can be used with a wide variety of resins in processes including vacuum infusion, RTM, press moulding, pultrusion and prepregging.
The reinforcements, therefore, provide the high performance and easy processing normally associated with glass fibre composites but with lower weight and environmental impact.
Our products are designed to provide significant benefits compared to conventional composite materials:
Biotex Flax is also available as part of our own Evopreg range of prepregs for both component and tooling applications.
