Flax Linen fiber in a unidirectional pattern gives a unique look of wood to your composite parts. You can use this fiber completely on its own or as a cosmetic top layer to your parts to offer advantages of all fibers while retaining this beautiful appearance. Flax fiber has been proven to offer excellent dampening properties while being very low in density. This will yield a material that has a better strength to weight ratio than standard E-glass. When using this material as a top cosmetic layer you should take into consideration the color of the substrate below as you may need multiple layers especially if covering a dark material like carbon fiber. Due to the fabric being a uni directional material, you are able to lay strips next to each other to make a much wider part without seams. Shown are photos of the dry fiber as well as a chair finished in this beautiful material.
