Hemp Fibre & Hurd

World’s Strongest Plant Fiber

Hemp Fiber and Hemp Hurd

The stalk of the hemp plant is broken out into three sections, each of which is processed for different applications.

The exterior of the stalk has two types of fibers. The long fibers are ideal for creating long-lasting and durable products such as rope, netting and canvas. The balance of the fibers are used for fuels as well as paper products and cardboard.

The interior of the stalk has industrial applications such as being used in chemical absorbents, insulation and concrete.

Hemp Hurd

Hemp Hurd comes from the woody inner layer of the hemp stalk. It is extracted using our unique hemp decorticator, which separates the hemp fibre from the woody core.

Hemp Hurd is traditionally used as a construction material because it is fire-resistant, strong and insulating. It is also used as animal litter, because it is a low allergen, absorbent, and controls odours.

Hemp Hurd can be used as a sustainable source of cellulose, as well as nano carbons, which are essential for current and future technologies.

Hemp Fibre

Hemp fibre comes from the outer layer of the hemp stalk. It is extracted using our unique hemp decorticator, which separates the hemp fibre from the woody core.

Hemp fibre is the strongest plant fibre in the world, and our fresh decortication produces the strongest hemp fibre.
