We are looking forward to seeing which applications our fibre ultimately becomes a part of.

Even at these early stages, BioMid can be found in all the major segments and a wide range of niche segments of the composite Industry.

BioMid cellulose fibres are made by a physical transformation of pure cellulose fibrils into continuous, non-twisted yarns containing 900 filaments of 11 μm each. 

The fibre can be used to reinforce composites, plastics and rubber.

BioMid's inventors H.R. Hwang, President of ENC International Corp, Korea, and Gordon Shank, of GS Consulting, Canada, report that the fibre has an appearance very similar to glass fibre, but with almost half the weight or roughly the same density as aramid fibre.
