Tradical Hemcrete

Bio-composite building material.
Tradical® Hemcrete® is a unique, highly sustainable construction product for the creation of insulating walls as well as insulation layers for floors and roofs. Hemcrete® is a blend of specially prepared hemp shiv (Tradical® HF) and a special lime based binder (Tradical® 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.

Additionally Tradical® Hemcrete® has the ability to make an impact on the future of sustainable building. Helping to reverse the damaging effects of greenhouse gases, Tradical® Hemcrete® locks up approximately 110kg of CO2 per m3 of wall and provides one of the best value materials for low impact, sustainable and commercially viable construction.

Produced mainly from renewable sources, Tradical® Hemcrete® is mixed on site for fast track construction and delivers high levels of insulation, air-tightness and vapour permeability.
