Introducing Hemp Lime Binder

Posted on 03 May 2017

Hemp Lime Binder is a low density, hydraulic lime based binder used in the manufacture of hempcrete (hemp concrete). Hempcrete is a bio composite building material which provides enhanced thermal properties to walls and roofs using sustainable materials.

Typically Hemp Lime Binder is blended with hemp shiv and water to create hempcrete as a semi-dry mix. The hempcrete is then normally cast around a steel or timber frame to create a solid, non-load bearing wall.

The hydraulic lime used in manufacturing K Lime Hemp Binder is manufactured to BS 459-1; K Lime Hemp Binder is ISO 9001 & 14001 approved.
