Product Description

 dfdfadIt is an annual or biennial herbaceous plant (rarely a short-lived perennial) growing to 1.5-3.5 m tall with a woody

base. The stems are 12 cm diameter, often but not always branched. The leaves are 1015 cm long, variable in

shape, with leaves near the base of the stems being deeply lobed with 3-7 lobes, while leaves near the top of the

stem are shallowly lobed or unlobed lanceolate. The flowers are 815 cm diameter, white, yellow, or purple; when

white or yellow, the centre is still dark purple. The fruit is a capsule 2 cm diameter, containing several seeds.

 

Kenaf is cultivated for its fibre …. The stems produce two types of fibre: a coarser fibre in the outer layer (bast

fibre), and a finer fibre in the core. The bast fibres are used to make ropes. Kenaf matures in 100 to 200 days. First

grown in Egypt over 3000 years ago, the leaves of the kenaf plant were a component of both human and animal

diets, while the bast fibre was used for bags, cordage, and the sails for Egyptian boats. … The main uses of kenaf

fibre have been rope, twine, coarse cloth (similar to that made from jute), and paper. ….

 

Uses of kenaf fibre include engineered wood; insulation; clothing-grade cloth; soil-less potting mixes; animal

bedding; packing material; and material that absorbs oil and liquids. It is also useful as cut bast fibre for blending

with resins in the making of plastic composites, as a drilling fluid loss-preventive for oil drilling muds, and for a

seeded hydromulch for erosion control. Kenaf can be made into various types of environmental mats, such as

seeded grass mats for instant lawns and moldable mats for manufactured parts and containers. Panasonic has set

up a plant in Malaysia to manufacture kenaf fibre boards and export them to Japan.

Additionally, as part of an overall effort to make vehicles more sustainable, Ford and BMW are making the material

for the automobile bodies in part from kenaf. The first implementation of kenaf within a Ford vehicle was in the

2013 Ford Escape.

The BMW i3 uses kenaf in the black surrounds.

 

Kenaf seed oil

Kenaf seeds yield an edible vegetable oil. The kenaf seed oil is also used for cosmetics, industrial lubricants and

for biofuel production. Kenaf oil is high in omega polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs). Kenaf seed oil contains a

high percentage of linoleic acid (Omega-6) a polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA). Linoleic acid (C18:2) is the

dominant PUFA, followed by oleic acid (C18:1). Alpha-linolenic acid (C18:3) is present in 2 to 4 percent.

Kenaf seed oil is 20.4% of the total seed weight, similar to that of cotton seed. Kenaf Edible Seed Oil Contains:

Palmitic acid: 19.1%

Oleic acid: 28.0% (Omega-9)

Linoleic acid: 45% (Omega-6)

Stearic acid: 3.0%

Alpha-linolenic acid: 3% (Omega-3)

 

Kenaf paper

The most common process to make kenaf paper is using soda pulping before processing the obtained pulp in a

paper machine.

The use of kenaf in paper production offers various environmental advantages over producing paper from trees. In

1960, the USDA surveyed more than 500 plants and selected kenaf as the most promising source of tree-free

newsprint. In 1970, kenaf newsprint produced in the International Paper Company\'s mill in Pine Bluff, Arkansas,

was successfully used by six U.S. newspapers. Printing and writing paper made from the fibrous kenaf plant has

been offered in the United States since 1992. Again in 1987, a Canadian mill produced 13 rolls of kenaf newsprint

which were used by four U.S. newspapers to print experimental issues. They found that kenaf newsprint   made for

stronger, brighter and cleaner pages than standard pine paper with less detriment to the environment. Due partly to

kenaf fibres being naturally whiter than tree pulp, less bleaching is required to create a brighter sheet of paper.

Hydrogen peroxide, an environmentally-safe bleaching agent that does not create dioxin, has been used with much

success in the bleaching of kenaf.

Various reports suggest that the energy requirements for producing pulp from kenaf are about 20 percent less than

those for wood pulp, mostly due to the lower lignin content of kenaf. Many of the facilities that now process

Southern pine for paper use can be converted to accommodate kenaf….
