Pultruded profiles and constriction elements containing flax fibers for the building and engineering market

Successful, processing trials for the manufacture of constriction profiles via pultrusion were performed. The process ability was successfully demonstrated, by replacing the outer reinforcement layers with flax. Fibreforce uses around 250 tons of glass fibre per year with a total value of around 375.000 Euros. A successful implementation of the reinforcements developed in TEXFLAX in three selected products, i.e. FORCE 800 series, ladders and cable trays represent a total market value of around 250.000 Euros when 10% of glass is replaced by flax.
