ampliTex™

ampliTex™ reinforcement fabrics for high performance

The award-winning ampliTex™ range consists of extremely lightweight, high performance natural fibre reinforcement fabrics.

  • Improved safety with non-catastrophic crash behaviour
  • High vibration damping, specific bending stiffness and fatigue resistance
  • Novel design options – colouring and natural translucency
  • Radio transparency

The ampliTex™ range of technical fabrics includes different weaves – bi-axial, twills and UDs – with low/no crimp and twist, optimised for lightweight reinforcement. Thanks to excellent mechanical properties and low environmental impact, the ampliTex™ range is extremely versatile. In addition, high radio transparency, vibration damping, UV resistance and beautiful design options make ampliTex™ perfect for applications from sports to automotive, aerospace and marine.

Different types of manufacturing

ampliTex™ is available as dry fibre or natural fibre prepreg and can be used in different manufacturing scenarios:

  • Thermoplastic for efficient production in large-scale applications
  • Thermoset with vacuum infusion or RTM, or as prepreg in autoclave or prepreg compression moulding (PCM) for high performance applications such as motorsport bodywork, aerospace or space applications

Flax fibre quality

The flax fibre quality, yarn thickness and twist are all highly engineered for optimal mechanical properties in the final composite part. The fibres are specifically treated to optimise the fibre-matrix interface. We use European flax and the fibremix is thoroughly controlled for consistent quality over time.
