Flax fiber hose
Weight at nominal diameter: 22.7 g / m
Rated diameter: 15.9 mm
Internal diameter at maximum elongation: 22.5 mm
Width: approx. 25 cm
Wall thickness: 454 g / m²
Only this width available.
Flax fiber hose for high-performance and environmentally friendly composites with natural fiber reinforcement.
Considering the fact that glass fibers have a density of 2.6 kg / dm³ and a modulus of elasticity of 70 GPa, the 22.7 g / m light ampliTex flax fiber tube can replace a glass fiber tube weighing 34 g / m.
Price per meter.
In consultation with the manufacturer, the following has emerged:
The flax fiber swells slightly through the resin and thus absorbs more resin.
For pneumatic presses with 5 – 6 bar, it pushes the superfluous resin out again.
In the case of vacuum presses, attention must be paid to the resin quantity which is applied.
Apply the fibers on a flat plate and spread the resin well with a roll.
Apply approx. 390 g / m² of resin mixture to the UD flat (300 g / m²).
For flax biax (350 g / m²) apply approx. 490 g / m² resin mixture.
Apply approx. 160 g / m² of resin mixture to FD UD (120 g / m²).
