Produced from the husks of coconuts, this fiber is used to make high tensile ropes, mattresses, mats and scrubbers. It’s a byproduct and a degradable alternative to nylon and other inorganic fibers. The versatility of coir enables Pandiyan Exports to source this to many industries and customers alike for varied purposes. We have our acquirement points in the most strategic places where the availability of coir is in abundance, ensuring timely delivery. Coir fiber is shipped in bales and can be customized for any utility.
COIR is a versatile natural fibre extracted from mesocarp tissue, or husk of the coconut fruit Generally fibre is of golden color when cleaned after removing from coconut husk; and hence the name ” The Golden Fibre”. Coir is the fibrous husk of the coconut shell. Being tough and naturally resistant to seawater, the coir protects the fruit enough to survive months floating on ocean currents to be washed up on a sandy shore where it may sprout and grow into a tree, if it has enough fresh water, because all the other nutrients it needs have been carried along with the seed. These characteristics make the fibers quite useful in floor and outdoor mats, aquarium filters, cordage and rope, and garden mulch. Brown coir is used in brushes, doormats, mattresses and sacking. A small amount is also made into twine.
Pads of curled brown coir fibre, made by needle-felting (a machine technique that mats the fibres together) are shaped and cut to fill mattresses and for use in erosion control on river banks and hillsides. A major proportion of brown coir pads are sprayed with rubber latex which bonds the fibres together (rubberized coir) to be used as upholstery padding for the automobile industry in Europe. The material is also used for insulation and packaging. The major use of white coir is in rope manufacture. Mats of woven coir fibre are made from the finer grades of bristle and white fibre using hand or mechanical looms. Coir is recommended as substitute for milled peat moss because it is free of bacteria and fungal spores.
