NetComposites, in collaboration with Tilsatec and FORMAX, has developed an innovative, highly aligned flax-based tape and non-crimp fabric.
The new material is suitable for thermoset composite applications and will give improved properties over conventional woven natural fibre based composite materials. It has a higher stiffness per unit weight than glass fibre.
The material is suitable for a range of applications including automotive, sporting and consumer goods. Variants with thermoplastics, such as PLA and polypropylene, and bio-based pre-pregs are also being developed.
The highly aligned flax based tape will be on show at JEC Europe 2015 in Hall 7.3, stand G70 from 10th-12th March, Paris, France.
The team will be available throughout the show and encourages you to book an appointment. Please contact them on +44 (0)1246 266244 or firstname.lastname@example.org
The development of the highly aligned flax has been supported by the UK’s Composites Innovation Cluster.
