JUTE FIBRE, CHEMICAL COMPOSITION OF JUTE FIBRE, CHEMICAL FORMULA OF JUTE FIBRE
The jute fibre is a natural fibre. Jute is the most useful vegitable fibre after cotton. It is obtained from stem of jute plant. Jute fibre is used to make many types of products. Before the development of polythene and poly propylene sheets, the jute fabrics were mostly used for packaging purpose, and ropes etc. It lost it's utility as the most usable fabric after the development of polypropylene and polythene sheets.
Today, people have known about disadvantages of polythene sheet. It is too harmful for our environment. This polythene sheet do not get decomposed naturally. Many countries has banned it's use. The jute is now getting it's popularity as packaging material very rapidly. Since, this is naturally biodegradable fibre and do not has any harmful effects for environment. Jute fibre is 100% bio-degradable and recyclable. Thus we can say that jute is an environment friendly fibre.
It is used to make ropes ,carry bags, door mats, rugs,hessian clothes ,papers, curtains, carpets,celluloid product (films), non woven textiles, composites (pseudo-wood) cosmetics, medicine,paints, and geotextiles.
It protects form ultraviolet radiation. It has poor thermal conductivity. It resists to develop static charge. All these characteristics makes jute fibre very good usable material in home decoration.
