In order to achieve our aim of bringing bamboo alternatives to the composite material market, COBRATEX has developed a technological innovation that was patented at an international level. This high-tech process enables us to obtain a unique continuous ribbon of unidirectional bamboo fibres. This ribbon is very different to the standard yarns found on the market, made of glass, carbon, flax or other fibres. It is a complex structure composed of fibre bundles and closed honeycomb structures and channels, which embed air between two fibre assemblies. This ribbon is actually a composite structure by itself.
This particularity makes this product very different to all other reinforcements and provides many functional properties. COBRATEX’ innovation received numerous prestigious rewards and the company now offers a complete range of bamboo products to industrial companies.
Specific structural properties of natural fibres, especially flax and bamboo, are competitive with glass fibres. Plant based fibres answer the market’s need for more sustainable products and they bring new functionalities.
COBRATEX products are very different and unique due to our innovative process used to manufacture them. Air is embedded in between two fibre assemblies, in closed honeycomb structures and channels. This particularity leads to many advantages :
COBRATEX’ activity and products have multiple outcomes, especially concerning environmental sustainability :
