400g 2x2 Twill Biotex Flax Fibre Cloth (1250mm)

400gsm woven flax fibre composite reinforcement fabric in a 2x2 twill weave. This sustainable, natural composite reinforcement material can be used to produce components with a reduced environmental footprint, especially when combined with a suitable 'bio' derived system.

This heavier weight cloth can be used as a smooth surface layer in heavier flax laminates or to add a natural fibre appearance to a range of other types of reinforcement such as glass or carbon.

This fabric is available in 1.25m (1250mm) width and sold by the linear metre.

Biotex Flax woven fabrics are reinforcement textiles based on natural flax fibre and designed for fibre-reinforced polymer composite applications. As a premium natural fibre, flax offers improved mechanical properties over alternatives such as jute, resulting in higher strength-to-weight ratio and therefore stronger, lighter laminates.

Flax fibre can be processed in a similar way to glass or carbon fibre reinforcement and is suitable for use with a wide variety of resins such as epoxy, vinylester and polyester resin, including more sustainable or environmentally friendly synthetic and bio-based systems.

Flax fibre reinforcement is ideally suited to laminating by vacuum resin infusion where the vacuum consolation results in a high fibre to resin ratio and the resin infusion process produces void free laminates with an excellent visual appearance. Flax can also be laminated using a range of other processes including wet lay-up, resin transfer moulding (RTM), press moulding (matched tool), and prepregging.

How to Buy

This roll of flax fibre is 1.25m (49") wide and the fabric is sold by the linear metre. The unit price shown is for 1 linear metre but volume discounts automatically apply for larger quantities of fabric.
Please purchase the number of linear metres you require. When purchasing multiple metres the fabric will be supplied in one continuous length on a roll.

Further Information

About Biotex Fibres

Biotex natural reinforcements provide the high performance and easy processing normally associated with glass fibre composites but with lower weight and environmental impact. They are suitable for semi-structural and decorative applications in sectors such as automotive, construction, marine, sports and consumer goods.

Biotex Flax uses a unique Twistless Technology to ensure a high degree of fibre alignment, impregnation and performance.

Composites Evolution, suppliers of Biotex, have exclusively partnered with Easy Composites to make Biotex reinfocements instantly available worldwide. Composites Evolution can be contacted to discuss large commercial contracts.

Composites with a Natural Appearance

As well as excellent structural performance and environmental credentials, laminates made using this 400g 2/2 weave flax reinforcement can be manufactured without gelcoat or paint for a unique natural appearance, perfectly in keeping with modern environmentally conscious homes and workspaces. The 2/2 twill weave is reminiscent of the twill weave typical of carbon fibre reinforcement but with a distinctly natural appearance.

Woven flax can also be used to add an attractive natural appearance to sporting equipment like skis, snowboards and kiteboards, composite furniture items like tables and chairs and even architectural features.

Storage

Biotex Flax should be stored in a cool dry place away from direct sunlight. Flax fibre can absorb moisture from the atmosphere so drying may be required before use, especially if exposed to excessive humidity.

Safety

Flax fibre is a naturally occurring, non-hazardous material, but typical precautions should be taken when handling the material including using appropriate PPE and adequate ventilation. See SDS for details.
