Vegetable Fiber Material
Looking for a material that’s not only strong, but resistant to many types of liquids? Vegetable Fiber may be one of the most versatile tools in your toolbox.
Commonly known as Detroiter, Fibreflex Vegetable Fiber is a special kind of cellulose-based material that’s treated with protein glue and glycerin binder. Treated with formaldehyde to give it a tan hue, this process gives vegetable fiber an insoluble, protective seal to maintain its quality during storage and use.
While vegetable fiber can endure temperatures up to 250°F, its best quality lies in its resistance to many caustic liquids. Water, oil, grease, coal tar, gasoline, or alcohol; none can degrade Fibreflex Vegetable Fiber!
