Abaca Overview
This generous vegetable fiber, was the product with which our agriculture adventure began. Once used, as a strategic product for marine ropes, Abaca is one of the most sought of all cordage fibers where high standards of performance are expected. Very similar to the banana plant it has many uses. One of them is as cordage, and because of the different physical and chemical properties, it is used for Tea bags, coffee filters, meatcasing, air-filters and a wide range of derivative business units.
