Biocomposites

What are Biocomposites:

  • A new generation of composite materials with lower environmental impacts
  • Natural fiber mats are used as reinforcements with improved properties when compared to needlepunch

Applications:

  • Construction panels
  • Furniture & decoration
  • Sports & leisure
  • Transportation
  • Luggage
    

Benefits:

  • New forming technology to produce  composite reinforcement form renewable raw materials
  • Easy resin impregnation
  • High web homogeneity
  • Good strength
  • 15% Lighter weight than glass composites
  • Flame retardant

Sustainability Credentials:

  • Biosourced raw materials
  • Easy end of life (incineration)
  • Lower energy consumption in transportation thanks to lighter material
