Within the framework of the Cornet projects, partially supported by Wallonia, Celabor has just started a new project whose acronym is FLAXHEMPLAST.
This project aims at creating a breakthrough in the use of thermoplastic polymers reinforced with short-cut flax and hemp fibres, in "lead market" applications. One of the objectives is to use conventional, "low cost" and "high-volume" processing technologies (injection, extrusion, thermoforming…).
In this project, Celabor will have for mission to characterize the fibres from the point of view of their dimensions/granulometry and their technical performances.
The other partners of the project are Flander's PlasticVision, the ... Read more
