4 to 6 years
As the fastest-growing plant on earth, bamboo is harvested within three years without damage to the plant or the surrounding ecosystem.
The bamboo is shipped via bulk freight from Vietnam, Cambodia and, Myanmar to Taiwan.
The green outer hull of the bamboo is removed and then air dried. A non-toxic treatment protects against insects and the elements.
TieBam’s patented procedure reaches the most important goal in the application of resin by distributing the chemicals in a uniform distribution.
Resin impregnates the bamboo fibers as it is being processed by a 4,500-ton hydraulic press.
The heat treatment processes were designed to be efficient, accurate, and to enhance internal and external hardness and strength.
The ties will be stacked inside at the factory in anticipation of moving them to the docs to ship via bulk cargo.
The bulk carriers are merchant ships specially designed to transport non-containerized and unpackaged cargo.
The product will be shipped FOB shipping port.
