Coconut Fiber is a natural fibre extracted from the outer husk of coconut and used in products such as floor mats, doormats, brushes and mattresses. Coir is the fibrous material found between the hard, internal shell and the outer coat of a coconut. Other uses of brown coir (made from ripe coconut) are in upholstery padding, sacking and horticulture. White coir, harvested from unripe coconuts, is used for making finer brushes, string, rope and fishing nets. It has the advantage of not sinking, so can be used in long lengths on deep water without the added weight dragging down boats and buoys.
COCONUT FIBER – BROWN
Coconut Fiber – Brown is extracted out of a matured brown coconut. It is used for various applications like making Curled Coir Rope used in manufacturing coir mattresses, rubberized coir pads, coir cushions, carpet underlays, seat cushions, and insulating drainage pipes. Brown coir pads are sprayed with rubber latex, which bonds the fibers together (rubberized coir) and is extensively used as upholstery padding for the automobile industry. Coconut Fiber – Brown is also used for insulation and packaging.
