Hemp is one of the fastest growing and renewable plants and was first used to make usable fibre over 50,000 years ago. Hemp fibres are widely used in a variety of commercial applications, including paper, textiles, clothing, biodegradable plastics, paint, and insulation.
Hemp is a great insulating material. It can be used as an insulating internal plaster or to create concrete-like blocks that can then be used as breathable construction materials.
The material is also used to make composite panels for vehicles and papers. Hemp can be used to create specialty papers such as cigarette paper, banknotes, and technical filter papers.
Short cut hemp fibres
Our short cut hemp fibres are suitable for use in a wide range of applications due to its high tensile strength, tear resilience, and durability. Hemp fibres are made up of strands that are four to five times longer than wood fibre, making any finished hemp product strong.
Milled hemp fibres (flock)
Ground hemp can be added to strengthen many products, but the most common application is in the manufacture of paper.
Since hemp is naturally very strong and durable, it adds durability to paper products and also imparts its high dye affinity.
We can offer milled hemp fibre flock in the following sizes:
