Cost effective lignin‑based carbon fibres for innovative light‑weight applications


Blatraden is a high-end SME focusing on development and production of composite products. Vacuum infusion, prepregging and RTM are currently the main production processes. Blatraden has strong R&D capabilities, the key personnel have an extensive experience of frame work programmes as well as other international and national research projects. One of the main research topics during the last years has been to tailor bio-based fibres and resins for modern composite production techniques. Blatraden has modern facilities and is constantly developing new and automated processes to speed up the production and to increase the quality.
