A tent for car roof made with flax reinforced composites

The biobased, lightweight and recyclable sandwich panel was developed to replace a heavier, non recyclable polyester fiberglass mat. To comply with eco-responsible specifications, NaïtUp used flax reinforcement and thermoplastic resin, with a core made of wood.

For the final customers, using composite material offers a lighter product, with good mechanical performance, eco-designed and recyclable. This composites application allows to be in perfect adequacy with the expectations of the final customers, followers of ecology and respect for the environment.
