Flax for Composites
Woven tapes made of natural fibres by vombaur
Flax has accompanied people for thousands of years, in linen fabrics, in ropes, as insulation material. And until the present day. With woven tapes made of flax, we at vombaur make the functional and ecological advantages of natural fibres available for lightweight design.
Lightweight and firm
Flax fibres are particularly rigid and tear-proof. Textiles made of the natural material therefore give natural fibre reinforced plastics (NFPs) special stability. Additionally, flax has a low density. The components thus combine high rigidity and strength with low weight. Another functional plus: natural fibre-reinforced plastics are less prone to splintering than glass fibre reinforced plastics.
