Sisal Origins & its Uses

Sisal Origins & its Uses

Sisal fiber is derived from the leaves of the plant called sisal (Agave sisalana) belonging to the agave family. The fiber is obtained by crushing the leaf and putting it through a process of natural drying, brushing and preparation depending on its final use. The lustrous strands average from 80 to 120 cm in length and 0.2 to 0.4 mm in diameter.
Sisal is valued for cordage use because of its strength, durability, ability to stretch, affinity for dyeing, and resistance to weather conditions. Among the end uses for sisal fiber are bailing twine, yarn, ropes, cords, carpets, matting, netting and bags.
Other uses for Sisal fibre now Include high quality sisal carpets, buffing cloth for various industrial polishing applications, sisal pulp for use in the manufacture of speciality papers, cores for wire ropes, dartboards and various handicraft usages. In addition, construction industry uses Sisal Fibre extensively to make Gypsum, Plaster of Paris, and other forms of plaster reinforcement.
