Tradical® Hemcrete® is an insulation material that works in conjunction with a structural frame (normally timber) to provide a wall build system. Generally, this insulation is used on the external envelope walls where the highest thermal insulation factor is needed. The thickness of the wall determines the design insulation value of the wall, with thicker walls providing better insulation values. Cured and dried Tradical® Hemcrete® is a vapor-permeable (Breathable) material that must pass moisture to the internal and external faces of the wall.
