Our PALF extraction process has already been patented and is expected to be easier to scale up. Pineapple leaf fiber is 30 – 60 mm in length. It can be used in many applications
1. Staple palf for the weaving industry such as clothes, shoes, bags
2. Non-woven PALF for sound insulation and automobile parts like door panel
3. Preform PALF for plastics composite, for example, unidirectional preform and high mechanical strength parts via lamination
Besides that adding PALF can improve property of composite. For example ,PALF composite properties had mechanical properties higher than pure polypropylene around 3 times.
