What The Hempcrete Co. can do for you
What is Hempcrete?
Hempcrete is a natural, modern & sustainable building material that is an efficient replacement for traditional building materials such as masonry brickwork.
As it is a bio-composite material made of the inner woody core or “shiv” of the hemp plant, mixed with a lime-based binder, hempcrete requires no chemicals, produces VOCs (volatile organic compounds) and is hypoallergenic.
The result when paired with a timber structure, is a lightweight insulating material weighing about one seventh the weight of concrete. It can be finished externally with a render or left exposed with a sealant. Internally it can be rendered or plastered just like any other brick wall. Hempcrete is pest and rodent resistant including white ants & termites, it does not rot or mould and is a fire retardant rated for bushfire prone areas.
