Composites Evolution has brought together its extensive expertise in high-performance flax reinforcements with its Evopreg range of epoxy prepregs to offer motorsport customers a proven and flexible range of material and design options. The new flax-epoxy prepreg products include a lightweight woven surface ply (100 g/m², 2×2 twill), a medium weight woven ply (300 g/m², 2×2 twill) and a 150 g/m² unidirectional ply. Other prepregs, including biaxials and in fabric weights of up to 700 g/m², are available on request.

 

To assist customers in introducing flax-reinforced composites into their designs, Composites Evolutions Technical Support Team are available. They can offer advice on getting the best out of flax-reinforced Evopreg materials, including aspects such as cutting, lay-up, curing and on-track durability.

 

Using materials supplied by Composites Evolution, KW Special Projects has applied their expertise in component manufacturing to produce the GT rear wing component shown in the attached photograph. To demonstrate the use of flax prepregs alongside other high-performance materials, half the wing has been produced in flax-epoxy and half in carbon-epoxy.

 

Brendon Weager, Composites Evolutions Technical Director, commented:No other prepreg supplier has the depth of flax knowledge that resides within Composites Evolution. Were ideally positioned to help motorsport customers introduce natural fibre materials into their cars and bikes.
