The specialist in technical textiles and high-performance thermoplastic composites, Porcher Industries, has strengthened its partnership with Terre de Lin, a leader in flax fiber production. This non-exclusive technical and commercial cooperation aims to develop sales of flax fiber-based reinforcements for thermoplastic composites implemented by thermocompression.
The new Polypreg Flax/TP thermoplastic composite reinforcements woven by Porcher Industries SA, Badinières/France, from these flax rovings, combined with the chemical expertise of the company, constitute lightweight bio-reinforcements for making parts with a semi-structural appearance by ultra-fast thermocompression with infinite visual appearances.
TDL Technique, a subsidiary of Terre de Lin, Saint-Pierre-le-Viger/France, is currently developing flax/thermoplastic rovings, aiming to bring increased productivity to the use of flax fiber in composites and better manage the end of life for recycling.
This environmentally conscious range is the answer to increasing designer demands for composite parts. This partnership allows Porcher to guarantee very large volumes for top vehicle and aeronautics suppliers, as well as sports brands seeking this high-performance thermoplastic material with a lower environmental impact and which is easily recyclable.
