How is the product manufactured ?
"Coir" is the name given to the thick fibrous mesocarp that surrounds the nut of the coconut. When extracting the fiber, a significant amount (about 2/3) of material called PEAT, PITH, DUST, or peat* is obtained. The product is washed to remove salts naturally present in crushed fiber. The pH and salt level are rigorously controlled to meet the requirements for even delicate crops. The peat is mixed with cut coconut fibers and then compressed at 8:1 in the form of block of size 20 x 10 x 5 cm block.
Coconut peat is the spongy material that is naturally glued to coconut fiber. Not to be confused with the non-renewable peat, an organic matter found in a water-saturated environment and forests whose extraction is controversial.
