Cellulose Fiber Biomid™

BIOMID®

  • 100% HIGHLY CRISTALLINE CELLULOSE FIBER
  • Made of Lumber Industry by-products
  • Obtained by mechanical process(unlike Viscose rayon which is obtained by chemical reaction)
  • BIOMID® is a 11µ filament diameter , 183 Tex roving Bobbins of 1 / 3 / 4.5 kgs

Main Features of BIOMID®Fiber

  • Almost half the weight of glass fiber, on-par in density with Aramid fiber
  • Stable to 360°C, or about double most thermoplastics and native natural fibers
  • Specific properties of BIOMID® laminates are often higher than those made of glass fiber
  • Much less abrasive than glass fiber
  • Translucent and Odourless (not opaque like traditional natural fibers)
  • Volume of 183 Tex BIOMID® is similar to
    • 3K Carbon fiber
    • 1420 denier Aramid fiber
    • 940 denier HMPP fiber
    • 300 Tex e-glass roving
