Dear member,
please find below a request of Craig Calfee craig@calfeedesign.com regarding an alternativ hemp source.
We currently source hemp from China and would prefer a different source that perhaps uses less chemical processing. We make bamboo bicycle frames and join the bamboo with a hemp/epoxy tow wrap. It is called roving.
Any ideas? Romania?
BTW, I did a comparative study on various natural fibers in epoxy that might be of interest to you. Let me know and I’ll send it.
