Project structuring industrialization of bio-based high performance thermoplastic composites reinforced with flax fiber and contributing to the emergence of a chain of dedicated technical flax in France.
4 priority market segments :
The FIABILIN project comes from the process initiated by the FiMaLin association to create, organize and promote a new line of technical flax in France. It aims to be both :
To achieve these objectives, flax fiber reinforcements and associated semi- products will be designed on a new technology platform created by DEHONDT Group (FLAX TECHNIC).
This tool integrates innovative industrial equipment used for development of “materials” solutions for the partners providing the implementation of finished parts and will produce pre- series prototypes of the future high-performance technical fabrics.
The first industrial applications FIABILIN are expected within three to five years.

For Dehondt Group , this funding will :
The FIABILIN project is ambitious because of the number of partners, industry sectors and potential economic benefits.
For DEHONDT, it is an important project that will enable it to strengthen its position in the new industrial jobs in the field of bio-based high performance composite materials.
This project will diversify its activities through its commercial division Flax Technic ® and export development.
Applications referred to in this project (automotive, marine, aerospace, etc. .. ) will also showcase the expertise of the Dehondt Group , the result of work carried out since 2003.
The Dehondt Group since its inception in 1953, has been constantly innovating and that you want to change the culture surfaces flax for its current market of equipment for harvesting and processing of natural fibers
