This 550gsm flax cloth is the heaviest of our woven flax cloths. Whilst its heavier weave and less smooth surface texture make it better suitable for use as a backing ply, its larger weave pattern does result in more clearly visible weave pattern when used as a visual surface ply.

About Flax Fibre

Flax fibre is environmentally friendly and sustainable alternative to traditional composite reinforcements such as glass fibre.

Although flax fibre offers lower overall strength and stiffness compared to reinforcements such as glass fibre, it does offer particular advantages in vibration damping and sound absorption, along with adequate mechanical properties and a great natural aesthetic to complement its environmental credentials.

How to Process

Flax fibre can be processed in a similar way to most dry composite reinforcements including 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 reinforcement can be used on its own or in conjunction with other types of reinforcement, including glass or carbon, to achieve the desired properties or appearance.

Dry flax fibre can be laminated using a range processes including hand layup, vacuum bagged hand layup, resin transfer moulding (RTM) and resin infusion.

It is particularly well suited to resin infusion with the fibre’s structure allowing good resin flow through the laminate. The vacuum consolation results in a high fibre to resin ratio and the vacuum infusion process produces void free laminates with an excellent visual appearance.

Typical Uses

Flax reinforcement is most typically used in applications with a focus on environmental sustainability, in particular products like canoes, kayaks, paddle boards, furniture and leisure products designed for environmentally conscious consumers. When used without a coloured paint or gelcoat, flax fibre has a low-key, natural appearance, perfectly in keeping with homes, workspaces and lifestyles of this growing market.

Flax fibre is also used in mass-market applications for its vibration absorption and sound deadening properties such as parcel shelves and door liners for the automotive sector.

  • Canoes, kayaks, and paddleboards
  • Skis, snowboards, skateboards
  • Dinghies, yachts
  • Furniture, architectural mouldings, and panels
  • Parcel shelves, door liners

How to Buy

This 550g flax fibre cloth is 1m (39") wide and the fabric is sold by the linear metre. Simply enter the qty according to the number of linear metres you want to buy; the fabric will be supplied in one continuous length.

The unit price shown is for 1 linear metre but volume discounts automatically apply for larger quantities of fabric.

Please note: When ordering quantities of less than 5m, the flax will be supplied carefully folded and bagged. Flax is a flexible and resilient material and is not damaged by folding in this way but if you want to ensure the material is supplied on a roll, please order a minimum of 5m.

Storage

Flax fibre 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.
