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.

First Quality Remnants:
First Quality Fabric Remnant Rolls are short rolls of fabric, which have no defects in them. These remnant rolls are either left over fabric from the end of a roll, or sections of fabric which were cut at the wrong length for a specific order. So instead of discarding the short roll, we package it up and sell it as a First Quality Remnant Roll. These First Quality Remnant Rolls are sold at 20% off of the retail price of that fabric.
Second Quality Remnants:
Second Quality Fabric Remnant Rolls are short rolls of fabric, which have a defect in the woven fabric in them. These remnant rolls are cut out of the standard fabrics we sell, but from sections of the rolls that have some defects in them. These defects make them not good to use if you want to make cosmetic parts, which have perfect woven fabric in them, but can be used as the inner layers of your parts, or if you are making small parts and can cut around the defects. These Second Quality Remnant Rolls are sold at 25% off of the retail price of that fabric.
All remnant rolls are rounded DOWN to the nearest ½ yard. So a remnant listed as 0.5 yards may actually be between 18” and 35” in length and a remnant listed at 2.0 yards may actually be between 72” and 89” in length.
