The term ‘HempFlax-grade fiber’ is used to define the finest possible quality of product. This category covers both finished and semi-finished hemp fiber products, and also technical grade flax fiber.
Technical grade hemp fiber
Hemp fiber in bulk as a raw material for further processing. The fiber is processed from high quality hemp straw and produced according to European Industrial Hemp Association (EIHA) specifications. HempFlax hemp fiber is made from industrial hemp cultivated in Europe and refined without the use of chemicals on our custom-built processing lines.
The raw fiber is first combed, then evenly fed into a cleaning machine. This process is repeated twice before the fibers are pressed into bales under high pressure. The construction of this production line is unique, enabling an optimum combination of fiber length and fineness to be reached. This fibre is extremely suitable for high-end applications such as in the automotive and textile industry.
