The environmentally friendly fibers used are a non-twisted, continuous filament yarn containing 100% cellulose. Our Unidirectional Cellulose and Basalt tape is a much more sustainable option compared to regular Uni Directional tapes.
Over 93% of harvested trees goes into lumber production. The Cellulose fibers are made from the 7% of the tree that is considered waste. Electing to use trees as the cellulose source eliminates the need for displacing food crop lands and does not require special irrigation, pesticides or fertilizer. Basalt fibres that are woven in a vertical format, this allows the full benefits of Basalt to be unitized in areas required. The Unidirectional format also always for the tape to be benefit without crimping. Basalt fibres are made from crushed Basalt rocks, which is one of the most commonly found volcanic rock in low to mid lining coast areas. Basalt in considered as an environmentally friendly product, as there no other materials required manufacture and does not need to be treated like other fibres. The manufacturing process is simple, Basalt is sourced, then washed, crushed, melted and then extruded into fibres.
Please note the Cellulose fibres are amber/yellow in colour once laminated.
