EcoRein® Woven is thermoplastic-based prepreg reinforced with biaxially aligned flax fibers in the form of woven fabrics.
EcoRein® Woven family provides orthotropic mechanical properties rather than a maximized performance in one direction as in the case of EcoRein® UD. The interconnected flax fibers within varied weave patterns bring drapability and ease manual handling.
EcoRein® Woven Prepreg family offers sustainable solutions to the complex dilemma in the material selection of optimum performance, lightest design, minimum environmental impact, scalability, and affordability.
The reinforcing flax fibers are carbon-neutral, renewable and light (similar to carbon fiber and 40% lighter than glass). Besides bio-based reinforcing fibers, the optional polymer type in EcoRein® Woven family, polypropylene for recyclability, and polylactic acid for enhanced biodegradability, helps designers to go further in circularity approach.
EcoRein® Woven family is suitable for all thermoforming processes (compression moulding, vacuum moulding, injection overmolding and automated tape laying). There is no need to use extra thermoplastic film/sheet. They are compatible with varied materials such as non-woven and wovens (natural, glass or carbon fiber based), decorative fabrics, honeycomb structures.
EcoRein® Woven family is now available in rolls of 150 cm wide or as flat sheets in required dimensions. Upon request, we can design & manufacture plates in varied stacking sequences.
No specific precautions in handling, composite manufacturing, storage, packaging and transport is required.

Need Customized Solutions?
EcoRein® W-30 is designed to provide a balance between standart performance and affordability. It is a perfect fit for industries looking for sustainable solutions but put affordability rather than high performance at the first place.
EcoRein® W-50 is designed to provide the enhanced mechanical performance. It is a perfect fit for industries looking for high mechanical performance within sustainable solutions.
EcoRein® W-100 is designed for enhanced biodegrability. It is a perfect fit for industries where not only end-of-use waste but also optimum performance matters.
EcoRein® Woven family is assertive in replacing/reducing synthetic materials such as plastics, glass- and carbon-fiber reinforcements. Besides current product portfolio, EcoRein® Woven tailored to your needs is just a call / e-mail away. Just let us know to re-design performance-determining production parameters and offer you the best-fit product.
