American Lime Technology Products
American Lime Technologies offer a wide range of sustainable low carbon building systems for mainstream construction including US Heritage Group lime mortars, Baumit lime stucco, Tradical® Hemcrete®, and Breathe™ hemp insulation.
Tradical® Hemcrete® is a unique, highly sustainable construction product used to create insulating walls as well as insulation layers for floors and roofs. These products comprise a bio-composite building material perfect for creating buildings that have excellent thermal / acoustic properties as well as fostering a healthy living and working environment.
Tradical® Hemcrete® is a bio-composite building material made from hemp shiv (the woody core of industrial hemp) and a lime based binder called Tradical® HB. Tradical® Hemcrete® is sold in the US by American Lime Technology. DETAILS
Combining Tradical® Hemcrete® and a timber cassette, Hemclad® provides a sustainable off-site produced thermal cladding system for commercial and industrial buildings. DETAILS
Hembuild®, the factory produced, off-site system incorporating the structural frame into the timber cassette, creating a building envelope solution for low-rise buildings. DETAILS
Breathe™ insulation is a technically superior, healthy and sustainable insulation product made from premium grade hemp and flax fibers. Breathe™ insulation is very easy-to-use in roofs (between joists and rafters), within the walls of timber frame houses, and internally in walls and floors where the exceptional acoustic properties of Breathe™ insulation are an important additional feature. The tough and resilient hemp and flax fibers ensure that Breathe™ insulation is extremely durable and will perform effectively for the life of the building. DETAILS

Natural Hydraulic Lime Mortar is a healthy, breathable masonry mortar ideal for new construction. While it’s typically used for historic building envelopes, which must tolerate extreme weather and/or persistently damp conditions, it’s also recommended for sustainable new construction, including strawbale design. DETAILS
Limewash is a traditional material that has been used for thousands of years. Unlike modern paints, which lay on the surface of the substrate, limewash instead acts like a stain by penetrating deep into the pores of the underlying material. This process creates a peel-free, breathable surface. DETAILS
