Hemp Fiber is Highly Versatile
Both the core of the hemp stalk and the long fibres on the outside of the stalk, called primary hemp fiber, can be used for a wide range of applications. The good performance and cost effectiveness of both of these hemp fibers lend themselves to new or existing applications were alternative fibre solutions are required. With the rising cost of many existing non or semi renewable based resources, hemp fiber is quickly becoming the fibre of choice for a cost and performance conscious consumer interested in a more sustainable approach.
Core Hemp Fiber Applications:
The core hemp fiber, a spongy, absorbent material can be produced in a number of particle sizes. The applications extend beyond animal bedding and garden mulch to include specialty fillers in consumer and building products. Core hemp fibre is becoming popular in lightweight concrete in the fast growing green building industry. If you have a new product application in mind we are pleased to supply you with samples, and can ship our core hemp fibers to any location in North America or beyond upon request.
Primary Hemp Fiber Applications:
The primary hemp fiber is well known for its high tensile strength and stiffness. The modern applications for primary hemp fiber are as a reinforcing fiber in composites. The primary hemp fiber does equally as well with plastic binding systems using thermoplastic and thermoset resins. The primary hemp fiber is also being used more recently with plaster and cement. These hemp fibers also can be used for the production of specialty pulp and paper. The primary hemp fibers are available in different staple length, purity and can be packaged according to the requirements of the end applications. Due to the large number of existing and future end uses, the primary hemp fiber may in fact be used in a product you are not event aware of. We can make samples of primary hemp fiber available in a range of formats, including custom made hemp fibers according to your specifcations.
