In India vulcanized fibre is referred to as "red fibre" or just "fibre". It is manufactured by bonding several layers of pure cotton pulp in zinc chloride solution and then "washing" to leave behind a durable, chemical free, environment friendly product which contains no resins or bonding agents. Vulcanized fibre is available in different forms- rolls, coils & sheets. The electrical grade of vulcanized fibre is sometimes also referred to as "fish paper".
We stock vulcanized fibre from 0.25mm to 10mm thickness in rolls & sheets. We have full in-house slitting facilities and can supply coils/strips as per your needs.
