Spray Applied HEMCRETE

Apr 21, 2010
HemcreteŽ is a blend of specially prepared hemp shiv (TradicalŽ HF) and a special lime based binder (TradicalŽ HB). Together these products form a bio-composite building material that can be used both for the creation of buildings that have excellent thermal and acoustic properties as well as creating a healthy living and working environment.

This film shows the material being sprayed into place while building Lime Technology's offices. There is also a film on YouTube showing the material being applied using shuttering while building the NNFCC Renewable House at the BRE Innovation Park
