    FLAX
    A NATURAL ALTERNATIVE TO COMPLEMENT CARBON
    Flax is a naturally grown raw material. It is one of the oldest known raw materials, and can be traced back 30,000 years when it was used by prehistoric man.
    Anecdotal evidence has it that Egyptian priests dressed exclusively in linen (made from flax), as it was considered a symbol of purity.

    Today, it still remains an organic raw material, supporting ecological, sustainable agriculture – thus also representing a 'pure' raw material.
    Growing flax requires little or no herbicides or fertilisers, further contributing to the sustainability equation.

    Naturally grown, an eco-friendly raw material
    Supports ecological, sustainable agriculture
    Can be used for structural applications
    Good sound deadening qualities and does not conduct electricity
    Can be used in aesthetic interior applications

    BALTIC 68 CAFÉ RACER
    The first yacht of this size to be built using flax, the eco-friendly hull material. 50% of the hull structure will use naturally grown flax significantly reducing the yacht’s environmental impact. Apart from being an eco-friendly raw material, Bcomp’s ampliTex also has excellent sound deadening properties enabling us to further reduce weight.
