flax fiber properties in composites

 

 

Mechanical properties of Twistless Crimpless FLAX UD 110g/m²

 

Following the measured mechanical properties made by an independent laboratory, “the full potential of the flax fibre is used in our crimpless twistless flax UD”

 

Mechanical properties on a composite manufactured by RTM / thermosetting resin

 

Hereunder are the mechanical properties measured on a composite made with 12 layers of “Twistless Crimpless FLAX UD 110g/m²” and an epoxy resin processed by RTM:

Failure Strain 1,35 %
FLEXION(ISO 14 125) Modulus 31 GPa
Max Strength 294 MPa
Failure Strain 2,6 %
THEORIC COMPOSITES’ DENSITY : 1.31gr/cm³
