Wood wool boards

1.80K viewsNewbuilds

Is it possible to get a wood wool board that has been mineralised/binded with lime as opposed to cement. I want to use wood wool boards in conjunction with hempcrete external walls so I want it as environmentally friendly as possible.

Thank you for getting in touch.  Unfortunately wood wool boards mineralised by lime are not available. The main issues with using lime for this process are that as lime is weaker than cement so you do not have the same strength within the board. Also due to the much slower curing of lime the boards would need significantly longer to cure which would greatly impact the price, this would also require considerable storage space with the correct environment to help the boards cure, when this is factored in the environmental impact would be greater than using cement.  Please let us know if we can be of further assistance.
