Application

Aloe fibre possesses high tensile strength, low extensibility and ensures better breathability of fabrics. It is one of the most versatile natural fibers that is used in raw materials for packaging, textiles, non-textile, construction and agricultural sectors.

Shipment/Storage

Aloe fibres are shipped in bales.

If not properly cleaned before shipment, heat may cause the juice of the fibre to exude.
