Flax
Applications

Beyond its application in fashion, lifestyle and interior decoration, flax is utilised as an important component in a wide range of areas. Its strength, wear resistance and absorbency are unparalleled and make it perfectly suitable for processing in a variety of technical applications.

A striking
selling point

Material is the fifth criteria for purchase when it comes to women’s apparel. However, corresponding to less than 1% of fibre textiles sold worldwide, linen has become an attentiongrabbing selling point!

Sports & leisure

Surfing

Flax composite is a major ally of technical performance. It’s already behind an eco-designed surfboard and a brand new, easier to handle, stand up paddle board

Tennis

The end of tennis elbows. With a racket containing only 15% flax, the level of shock absorption is reduced by 22%.

cycling

Aerodynamics and lightness are the two essential criteria
for a cyclist. Substituting flax for carbon in certain parts of
a bike’s frame allows for both structural strengthening and
a reduction in vibrations

Automotive

Flax composites are used in cars to lighten them, resulting in lower CO2 emissions and less environmental impact.

Aviation

If an aircraft cabin interior and its service trolleys were to use integrated flax composites, the plane would be 170 kg lighter, leading to a saving in kerosene of 2.1 million litres a year.
