3.2518.00 "incl. VAT"

Flax and carbon mix fabric, best of both worlds.

ampliTex flax-carbon UD fabrics, non-crimp, in multiple widths and weights.

170-225gms, 25-350mm wide.

price is pr. 1m length. If more is ordered then it is rolled as one piece.

Technical datasheet: t-flachs-5027-e

Flax parameters: Density: 1350, Y modulus: 58500

Carbon parameters: Density: 1700 Y modulus: 235000

Tip: Use glue to stick the amplitex to the core before layup to make it stay where you desire.

Note: Flax fiber swells slightly and thus absorbs more resin. A good idea is to mix about 50% more then with glass. So if for glass you use 45-50% of fabric weight, for flax use about 65-75% of fabric weight.  It also can catch some humidity, so its good idea to dry it a bit before layup. For pneumatic presses with 3 – 6 bar, extra resin is pushed out again so it will be ok.  In the case of vacuum presses, please be careful how much resin you apply.

The fusion tape brings the best of two worlds: the very high stiffness of carbon and the light weight and damping of flax. Also both fibers have a very good compatibility, since they have similar thermal expansion coefficient and failure strain.

Price per meter.

Instructions: The flax fiber absorbs more resin.

Pneumatic presses with ~5  bar is recommended to make good laminate with minimum excess resin.

Vacuum press: follow this resin quantity recommendations: resin / (resin + fabric) = 60%
Spread the resin well with a roll on a flat surface or pour the epoxy on to the fabric and then make a roll out of it. Then let it soak for some minutes. Much easier than try to smear it out. 

For simulation I suggest you try to use averaged value of density and Y-modulus.
