Sunstrand fibers are compatible with thermoset and thermoplastic sheet and bulk molding compounds, as well as infusion processes. Our goal is to provide products that are drop-in replacements for glass fibers.

Flax

Much like other bast fiber plants, flax takes only 100 days to grow in a normal growing season. Used mostly for Linens and food applications, flax fiber is the original natural fiber being used in composites. Most automobile manufacturers in Europe implement it in thermosetting applications for interior car parts, and plan on increasing the use of the fiber in more applications.
