180g Cross-Stitched Unidirectional Flax Fibre (1000mm)

FLAXDRY-UD180 cross-stitched unidirectional flax fabric from Eco-Technilin is an environmentally friendly and sustainable alternative to traditional composite reinforcements such as glass fibre.

As well as its environmental credentials, flax fibre has a natural aesthetic and excellent vibration damping properties. This woven unidirectional reinforcement uses a lightweight flax thread in the weft, giving it the handling characteristics of a woven cloth whilst retaining the directional nature of a UD material.

This unidirectional cloth is 1000mm (39”) wide and sold by the linear metre.

FLAXDRY-UD 180 is a dry, undirectional flax fibre reinforcement, supported by a lightweight cross-stitched weft, resulting in a UD fabric with excellent stability, handleability and drape characteristics.

Unidirectional reinforcement like this is used to provide maximum strength and stiffness in a particular direction and can be layered with other plies of UD, or woven reinforcement, to produce a laminate with optimum stiffness according to the loads acting on the component.

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 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), resin infusion and matched tool/press moulding however the 100% unidirectional construction of this material does result a very dense reinforcement which may infuse considerably more slowly than its woven counterparts.

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 properties including in skis, snowboards and skateboards to create equipment with a dampened feedback.

  • Canoes, kayaks, and paddleboards
  • Skis, snowboards, skateboards
  • Dinghies, yachts
  • Furniture, architectural mouldings, and panels
  • Dashboards, car interior pieces

Bio Resins

To support our range of natural fibres, Easy Composites has sourced a range of bio epoxy resins which use plant derived content from sustainable sources to lower environmental impact without compromising on performance. They are an ideal match for use with these flax fibres. We have our LB2 bio derived epoxy laminating resin which you can find here: LB2 Epoxy Laminating Bio Resin and our IB2 Infusion grade epoxy resin here: IB2 Epoxy Infusion Bio Resin.

How to Buy

This 200g unidirectional reinforcement is 400m (~16") 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.

About Eco-Technilin

With 20 years of experience, France-based Eco-Technilin is the European leader in the technical use of natural fibres. Easy Composites are proud to be the exclusive UK distributor for Eco-Technilin and support them in their goal to make environmentally friendly technical materials as affordable and accessible as possible.
