Environmentally friendly Fibres and Flocks from sustainable sources

Composite Mix of Natural & Synthetic Fibres

Fibres & Flocks

Composites are made up of individual materials such as fibres to provide a combined reinforcement solution for weight, strength or cost reduction. The different fibres impart their special mechanical and physical properties to enhance matrix properties and produce material properties unavailable from the individual constituent materials. An example of where fibre composites have proven to be successful is in the manufacture of brake pads where a more expensive fibre has been partially replaced by a less expensive material without a significant reduction in performance.

Milled (flock), Composite Mix of Natural & Synthetic Fibres

Milled (flock) Composite Mix of Natural & Synthetic Fibres

Milled (flock), Composite Mix of Natural & Synthetic FibresMilled fibres also known as random length or ground flocks are routinely used to improve the properties of a wide range of industrial products. The addition of a controlled amount of these flocks can achieve a number of benefits. For example, milled fibres can reinforce and add strength to a product while drying, curing or vulcanising, as well as preventing the formation of micro cracks, which ultimately reduce the integrity of a product. Milled fibre products also contribute towards the strength, toughness and abrasion resistance of the finished product.
