Hemp Goes to the Construction Site to Build –Hempcrete Foundation
Hempcrete is another building material which is made from hemp. The hemp plants wooden core is often referred to as “shiv”. This shiv is mixed with water and a lime binder which creates a biocomposite material. The water and lime binder undergo a chemical reaction that causes it to become cement-like. It is different from cement because it is lightweight and with insulation qualities.
Unlike cement, however, it is weak, too weak to support load-bearing walls. This makes it impossible to use in house building to replace cement but it can be utilized in other ways in the home.
Hempcrete qualities include:
- Lightweight, breathable;
- Carbon negative and non-toxic;
- Resistant to water, fire, insects.
Hemp’s strong and durable fibers may be superior to steel in regard to weight but its overall strength is less, so it simply has utility but not total replacement value. Even with its limitations, humans have found important uses for hempcrete through the ages including possibly used in the building of the pyramids. It does have the ability to petrify over time so eventually the strength is substantial. Hempcrete can also survive well in harsh weather. Additional research shows the examination of the French bridge from the sixth century AD, researchers discovered hempcrete proving that it is durable over time.
When the different elements are added to the hemp, the binder, the binder coats the particles so they stick making it lightweight but a stronger consistency. When a manufacturer makes the hempcrete, he can alter the ingredient’s proportion so that the moisture absorbent qualities, the thermal quality and the structural quality varies.
