Easy Composites Ltd has formed an exclusive UK distribution agreement with Eco-Technilin, which makes natural flax fiber material for composites.

The range includes Fibrimat nonwoven reinforcements, Flaxdry woven reinforcements, Flaxtape unidirectional reinforcements and Flaxpreg prepreg reinforcements.

According to the company, Eco-Technilin dry flax reinforcements are suitable for most laminating processes including hand-layup, vacuum bagging, press moulding, and resin infusion. Flaxpreg products are uncured epoxy-matrix, uni directional (UD) flax prepregs suitable for autoclave, oven or hot-press cure. The materials can be used to produce products including skis, snowboards, canoes, kayaks, architectural moldings and vehicle moldings from vehicle interior trim to external body panels.

‘We are delighted to have formed this partnership with Eco-Technilin at a time when both personal and corporate awareness of environmental considerations has never been higher,’ said Matt Statham, Easy Composites director.
