Harakeke Fibre - BIOPOLYMER NETWORK INFORMATION.The Biopolymer Network has created a harakeke fibre to replace fibreglass in composites which give them their strength and stiffness. This technology could be employed in a number of applications such as boat cabinetry, automotive parts, kitchen or bathroom use and bench tops.
