Ecologic™ HempCrete Binder Platinum, can filter the air, is VOC free, is ideal for people with chemical sensitivities, self regulates humidity/condensation, is fire/mold/insect resistant and is immune to the Alkali-Silica reaction due to sulfates and salts. Hempcrete can potentially save up to 60% of your heating and cooling bills. Ecologic™ HempCrete Binder Platinum has a negative carbon footprint due to a large amount of carbon sequestered while the hemp hurd is growing. Hempcrete can pass all Passive House requirements and tests when installed properly.
Furthermore, our Hempcrete Binder can be used as an insulation material for timber frame construction. After curing, users can apply our Ecologic™ plaster system over the Lime/Hemp wall to finish the project.
