Lingrove performance natural materials

Ekoa natural composites are even lighter than carbon fiber yet offer superior tensile strength and vibration dampening. With a basic sandwich structure the stiffness can best the modulus of carbon fiber as well. Ekoa can also be layered with carbon fiber to reduce weight and add dampening properties.  

Our natural fibers exhibit slightly viscoelastic properties which means they are a suitable core material for constrained-layer damping (CLD). For instance, Ekoa can serve as a dampening core with carbon skins. Our fibers exhibit 3x the vibration dampening as compared with glass.

Biobased Ekoa, like all composite materials, is made up of reinforcement fabric in a resin matrix, but one that is worker and planet friendly. This CO2 negative plant-based fabric and eco-resin have an authentic natural quality that adds an emotional layer to many applications. Also in some instances it does not require finishing for a straight-from-the-mold designer material aesthetic with no harmful VOCs!

Lingrove materials deliver solutions that offer a rare blend of high performance benefits translating directly into better products. Our claim, which we do not take lightly, is that parts made with Ekoa are stronger, stiffer, lighter, and vibration dampening. High performance Ekoa-built products are often higher performing though innovative natural materials but also integrative process and design. Imagine a superior performing embodiment of your product that also is truly sustainable.

Lingrove natural composites

Our goal was make a better material to craft the future of high performance objects. In partnership with Blackbird, we developed biobased composites over several years of prototyping to create a superior and ecologically built ukulele. Introducing a new a family of high performance natural composite material solutions. Ekoa is lighter than carbon fiber with superior resiliency and unique vibration dampening qualities for game-changing results in various applications. These CO2-negative plant fiber technical fabrics are impregnated with biobased eco-resin yielding a worker and planet friendly solution which simply performs better. The beautiful natural aesthetic does not require finishing- for a truly beautiful and advanced composite finish. Go natural with Lingrove composite solutions and create seriously better product. Ekoa is manufactured in the USA enabling convenient U.S. manufacturing.


Our Company Mission
We provide advanced sustainable materials and development solutions to help you get ‘better’ to market.
The Lingrove Philosophy
Products should aspire to be high-performance, potentially heirloom objects of great satisfaction to those who use them. We help manufacturers create better products through use of  amazingly effective yet natural composite construction blended with an integrated marketing + design approach.
The Lingrove Promise
We guarantee the high performance as well as the ecological credibility of our composite materials.
Design-for-Manufacture Services
We offer design services to support various phases of research, design and development.

Ekoa is made with renewable and CO2- plant fibers, reducing greenhouse gases and produced using little energy and no water. The biobased resin also reduces greenhouse gases by over 50% compared with conventional systems.
