Procotex SA (Dottignies, Belgium) showed an array of flax fiber unidirectional prepregs for high-performance “eco-composites.” Available with both thermoplastic and thermoset resin matrices, the flax prepregs offer a lower density than glass fiber as well as high vibration damping, low abrasion and obvious recyclability for reduced environmental impact. The company also offers kenaf, jute, sisal and cocos fibers; recycled polypropylene fibers for thermobonding of materials, such as auto carpet underlayment or acoustic insulation panels; and a variety of other recycled fibers and fiber blends. Procotex claims a capacity of 30,000 metric tonnes (66.14 million lb) of recycled textile fibers per year.
