Airplane cabin interior made with renewable ampliTex™ and powerRibs™ materials 

Mobility Planet

Bcomp developed AeroFLAX together with Lufthansa Technik, the leading provider of MRO services. Airplane cabins need to be as light as possible to optimise energy consumption of a plane. Here, flax fibre composites offer clear benefits over traditional glass fibres while being sustainable.


100% built with natural fibre reinforcements and a bio-based resin system, components made with AeroFLAX can be up to 20% lighter and significantly reduce the part''s CO2 emissions from cradle to gate. Further CO2 emissions can be cut over the lifetime of the plane thanks to the low weight.

Materials & Processes

Bcomp''s ampliTex™ and powerRibs™ flax fibre reinforcements are combined with a bio-based resin to form the AeroFLAX material used for environmentally friendly cabin concepts. While new eco-efficient aircraft types will only come to the market in a decade or so, entire interior cabin linings could already now be made from AeroFLAX and added during line-fit or retro-fit.
