Biobased natural composites with low density- even lighter than carbon fiber. Forms crafted from Ekoa fabrics and prepregs are stiff, light with a premium natural aesthetic. Appropriate for nearly every sector, these materials offer transformative products and experiences with a better feel, through weight reduction and vibration damping. Lingrove lightweight, ecological solutions can help enhance ever manner of application including recreation, transportation, consumer products and the built environment.
Natural composites damping qualities enhance applications by absorbing vibrations. With 3x the vibration dampening compared with glass, Ekoa's sonic dampening derives from its low density relative to conventional composite materials. Ekoa can serve as a dampening fascia layer or with its slightly viscoelastic properties, is suitable as a core material for constrained-layer damping (CLD). Carbon skins with Ekoa core or as fascia layer offers dampened, lighter parts. and a low density core can dramatically dampen vibrations further.
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.
