They blend it with hemp hurds to make hempcrete, which is not an original insulation material. It is steam penetrable and contains NO Portland bond, and hempcrete is the green compound tool used in construction because of the sustainable attributes of lime with thermal features of hemp hurds. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp wordsmith 0 Questions 256 Answers 0 Best Answers 531 Points View Profile wordsmith 2020-07-13T17:13:25-04:00Added an answer on July 13, 2020 at 5:13 pm Lime binder is a hempcrete binder.

Although a lime binder is a powder, it is often used with cement to do its job. Also, because it is a mined and processed substance, lime has a more significant environmental footprint than many would like. Right now, there are lots of ongoing tests to try and find a substitute to use in place of lime, with one viable option being china clay powder, as this will remove the need to use cement altogether. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp amanda.tolar Waynesburg, United States (US) 0 Questions 313 Answers 0 Best Answers 662 Points View Profile amanda.tolar 2020-07-13T15:19:32-04:00Replied to answer on July 13, 2020 at 3:19 pm So is it a powder, then? 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Moogdummy 0 Questions 246 Answers 0 Best Answers 521 Points View Profile Moogdummy 2020-07-17T08:49:06-04:00Replied to answer on July 17, 2020 at 8:49 am Yes the lime binder is a powder. You mix a little bit of water (not nearly as much as you need for concrete) and you let it sit to dry. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerCancel replyYou must login to add an answer.
