SISAL: Agave sisalana is a hardy plant. Species of agave native to Southern  Mexico but widely cultivated and naturalized in many countries. This particular plant leaf yields stiff fiber and has the best yield and fiber compared to any other fiber in the world

Uses Of Sisal Fiber

High grade sisal fibers are long and made into yarns (either on their own or in blend with wool or acrylic)and used in carpets. Medium grade fibers are made into cordage, ropes and twine, for agricultural and industrial use. They are particularly useful in a marine environment as they are resistant to deterioration by salt water. Low grade shorter fibers are valued in the paper industry because of the high content of cellulose and hemicellulose . they help to strengthen recycled paper

One of the traditional uses for sisal is baler twine, as the fiber is long lasting and flexible. This use, however has greatly decreased as the twine is being replaced by polypropylene and at the same time new harvesting technology uses much less twine. Sisal is still the best material for making dartboards

Sisal is used in composites instead of fiberglass to reinforce components of the automotive and aircraft industry. Sisal is also used in the construction industry as cement reinforcement for low cost housing, as plaster reinforcement and for roofing materials, as well as insulation. Sisal is also great as a buffing cloth as it is strong enough to polish steel, and soft enough not to scratch it. Another use for sisal is as a geotextile in land reclamation, stabilization of slopes and road construction
