Saertex is known for its expertise in composite reinforcements made from glass, carbon and aramid fibres. In addition to the previously used basalt, flax is now the second bio-based fibre that expands the range of textile possibilities. Flax fibres are renewable and have minimal environmental impact during processing. They help partners of Saertex to reduce the CO2 footprint of their composite products and are thus in line with Saertex's corporate vision "Innovation for a resource-saving future," which aims to make a significant contribution towards minimising the consumption of non-renewable resources and fossil fuels, the company said in a press release.
Terre de Lin is the global leader in flax production. Based in Normandy, it manages flax culture and the transformation from seeds to fibres. The company is committed to ongoing quality improvement and innovation. Terre de Lin focuses on keeping its flax expertise gained from the seeds to the fibres method and strives to continuously improve the environmental impact of flax production as well as its social responsibility.
