This webinar will be with Bcomp. Bcomp is the leading solutions provider for natural fibre reinforcements in high performance applications from race to space. The company started as a garage project in 2011 with a mission to create lightweight yet high performance skis. The bCores™ were launched and successfully adopted by some of the biggest names in freeride skiing. The founders, material science PhDs from EPFL, used flax fibres to reinforce the balsa cores and improve shear stiffness. Impressed by the excellent mechanical properties of flax fibres, the development to create sustainable lightweighting solutions for the wider mobility markets started.
Today, Bcomp provides sustainable lightweighting solutions for the mobility, sports and marine sectors without compromising performance. The in-house engineering team supports clients from idea to production, including reverse engineering of parts.
In this webinar we will discuss the latest on natural fibre composites and the benefits and challenges they bring along.
