Palm Oil Fiber Usage
The fibers are very well suited to be used in products such as sofas and beds, airplane and car seats, sound isolation materials, air and oil filters, ropes, doormats, brushes and brooms, and can be used for gardening and planting purposes as well.
We produce the best quality production of oil palm fibre and it was proven that the fibre produced amounted to extinguish quality. We mainly produce raw material for exporting to other country. The oil palm extracted by using the latest development of technology which able to provide the consumer with the highest grade of oil palm fibre. We provide the best services to our customers by taking account their need and demand. As pictured in our website, we had already establish business link with many areas around China. The fibers we produced had always receive positive comments especially concerning the production quality.
Palm Oil Fiber Characteristics
The fibers are very firm and strong, yet elastic. The high air circulation capacity makes them well suited to be used in ( hospital) beds and sofas. People who suffer from back pains will benefit from a Oil Palm Fiber mattress as well.
After the patented process, the end product of high quality oil palm fibre are shown. These fibres can be used by manufactures to make various fibre composites such as furnitures, infrastructures, matteress, erosion control, paper production and also landscaping.
The similar quality of oil palm fibre with normal wood had make it very versatile in its use.
Palm Oil Fiber Details
" Inherent characteristics such as high moisture content will have a detrimental effect on the oil palm residues. Degradation and infection will easily take place thus leading to deterioration in the properties of the fibres. To prevent this from happening, a moisture content of around 15% ( on wet basis) was set.This value is comparable to the moisture content for all wood-based fibers" - SIRIM
" The standard has also identified impurities as a critical element in producing high quality fibres. Impurities by definition means the calyxes, spikes, aggregates or fibre strands, any dust or fine particles and parenchyma of EFB. Since it is practically impossible to have fibre free impurities, the maximum level of impurities allowed for in the standard is at 15% . Nevertheless with future improvement in the process technologies, this limit could be further reduced." - SIRIM
" The final EFB fibre characteristics that merits attention is the oil content of the fibre. The presence of a significant percentage of residual oil possess a major problem in that it will react with the moisture content hence giving rise to rancidity and ultimately fungal growth. The control limit for oil content should be around 3% ." - SIRIM
" For the purpose of commercialization, the standard recommends ONE grade of empty fruit bunch fibre ( EFB) . In quantifying the percentage proportion of fibre length, the standard has established the following numerical values: Fibre Length > 100mm = % fibre proportion around 30% ." - SIRIM
