Sisal (Agave sisalana) and Henequen (A. fourcroydes) are the other two major hard fibers. Henequen is sometimes called Mexican or Cuban sisal. The various types of sisals are usually identified by country or origin. Brazil, Haiti, Kenya, Tanzania, and Indonesia, are all major producers. Sisal and Henequen are resistance to salt water but are relatively low in strength, about 80% that of manila. They are used primarily for twines, small ropes, and cable insulations.
