To Waterproof Hemp Rope?

A friend of mine would like to use heavy duty hemp rope as an effect at the bottom of skirting board. She would like to treat it so that if she washes the floor, it does not absorb the water. Any ideas anyone? Jane Snell

We are looking for some kind of organic material to use as reinforcement in our polyester resins. For that purpose, please let me know the tensile strength of hemp fibers and price per pound. We may be able to use hemp in our new development. Your prompt answer will be appreciated.

A #4. Dear Sukanchan, If you know any manufacturers of finely milled hemp I would be very interested to purchase. Or if you are researching in that direction, I am interested in maybe starting a mill. Jayney Galbraith
A #3. Dear Mr. Palit, I would be willing to discuss your proposal with you. If you want, contact me at cotingas@hotmail.com. Also, you might like to check out a hemp site: <www.hempforvictory.blogspot.com>. Regards, Kenyon Gibson
A #2. I am a retired scientist on Jute now offering service to a jute machine manufacturer at Calcutta, India. Hemp industry is growing faster than the expectation while jute industry is declining. Hemp fibre has some properties superior to jute. It can replace jute even in the packaging field. Globally its quantity is insignificant to attract the Hemp industry to divert the product range. I can assist to design the process up to spinning, which is complicated, and requires specialized knowledge. It will be appreciated if you circulate my proposal widely among the people involved in Hemp industry. Regards, Sukanchan Palit
