The consortium meeting occured in September 2017 in SICOMIN premises in south of France. The first tests done by resin makers (SICOMIN and Nord-Composite) revealed the real challenge of this project. Indeed, the flax had presented some unexpected behaviour that hinders impregnation of the resins. Resin makers thus have to work on new resins and TVDC (producer of the flax technical tissue) will work on a new tissue to foster impregnation of resins.
Following the new test that will be done, new combinations of resins, flax structures, and implementation process will be selected and proposed to POLYECIM for professional implementation.
The next meeting will happen in March 2018 in POLYECIM premises.
