Company Story

B-PREG was founded in 2017 as a start-up to design, develop, and manufacture high performance natural fibre composites for transport industry to help them in sustainable weight reduction.

With the unique textile structure and patent pending production technology, B-PREG has succeeded in scalable and competitively-priced production of natural fibre reinforced UD thermoplastic prepregs, B-Flax-UD. It is a thin thermoplastic sheet with unidirectionally aligned natural fibres inside, and a ready-to-use preform for thermoforming processes to manufacture lightweight and recyclable composite panels providing:

  • 3-fold higher mechanical performance than wood fibre reinforced composites
  • similar mechanical performance with glass fiber mat reinforced composites
  • better insulation/weight performance than EPDM sound barriers

So far, prototype demonstration (TRL-7) of varied interior panels with B-Flax-UD has been completed for passenger cars and vans at the facilities of two different interior panel manufacturers. Remarkable reduction in weight and production cycle time of interior panels has been achieved.
