NetComposites Ltd. (Chesterfield, UK), in collaboration with Tilsatec and FORMAX (Leicester, UK), has developed a highly aligned, flax-based tape and non-crimp fabric. The material is said to be suitable for thermoset composite applications and offers improved properties over conventional woven natural fiber-based composite materials. NetComposites says it has a higher stiffness per unit weight than glass fiber. 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 prepregs, are also being developed.
