Natural fiber fabric saves weight in composite structures

Monday, May 4th, 2015 | Permalink

A technology based on the concept of leaf-veins can be applied to strengthen synthetic fiber-reinforced composites and reduce overall weight. Based on flax fibers, powerRib fabrics can be used to reinforce thin-walled structures, resulting in a “pseudo mini sandwich,” since no core material is involved. The fabrics can readily be processed with standard vacuum molding techniques. Tagging Options Domain:  All Sites read more
