A few examples

Play Naturally Smart

Experience the signature feeling and natural liveliness added by ampliTex™ reinforcements. Thanks to significantly better vibration damping properties than glass- and carbon fibres, our highly engineered flax fabrics deliver a smooth ride experience, less fatigue and new opportunities. ampliTex™ technical fabrics have been tested and proven in a variety of climates and hold up to humid and wet environments – like snow and water – without any issues when processed correctly.
Outperform traditional glass fibres with a renewable and CO2 neutral reinforcement.​

Sustainability

Start to think circular – our flax fibres are CO2 neutral over their life cycle, and the fibres themselves are biologically decomposable. As a renewable material, flax fibres sequester CO2 from the atmosphere during their growth, acting as a natural CO2 sink.

Engineered in Switzerland – grown and produced in Europe – our ampliTex™ fabrics are not only CO2 neutral cradle-to-gate but also offer viable end-of-life options. While recycling solutions for traditional composites are still being developed, parts made with flax fibre reinforcements can already today be used for highly efficient thermal energy recovery rather than ending up in landfills.

Process
