With a lime/hemp mix proportion of 330 kg/m3, this solution is a must for restoration projects, as it only exerts a low amount of weight on old fragile structures.
For new constructions, this characteristic allows for lighter foundations.
Aside from the usual sand plus lime finishes with traditional or contemporary looks, the other finishes on offer — zinc, timber and metal — are also perfectly acceptable due to their inherent hygric transfer capacity.
Fewer materials are required to build an insulating structure — wall, lining, render, roof and screed — making the job much easier and guaranteed to last.
Tradical Hempcrete can be applied manually or by mechanical projection. The latter allows about 60 m² to be applied per day to the required thickness.
This materials adapts to different building systems: half-timbering, timber framing, metal framing and reinforced concrete beams and columns.
Used with timber load-bearing systems for new buildings or renovations, its capacity to regulate hygric transfers enables timber elements to dry out naturally over time, giving the structure a long life.
