Faurecia FlaxpregTM wins JEC Europe 2015 Innovation Award in the semi-products category
Flaxpreg™ can be applied by automakers as a multi-position trunk load floor or a structural floor in the passenger compartment of a vehicle. The use of unidirectional long non–woven flax fibers as reinforcement is the key innovation allowing a drastic weight reduction.
The Flaxpreg™ project, developed by Faurecia with PSA Peugeot-Citröen, Lineo and the University of Reims Champagne-Ardenne (France), started in 2011 and aims to design structural trim parts, following three key objectives: a drastic weight reduction, the use of renewable resources and a process in line with automotive cycle times and material costs constraints meeting the requirements of automotive mass production. Thanks to its very low density, Flaxpreg™ offers excellent mechanical properties allowing for a 35% weight reduction compared to traditional petro-based glass mat, polyurethane sandwich solutions.
