Lime Technology UK: Breathe™ natural fiber insulation achieves Euroclass fire rating

Hemp Technology’s innovative and highly sustainable natural fibre insulation Breathe™, has achieved a Euroclass E classification for reaction to fire, further extending the product’s many desirable properties.

Launched earlier this year, Breathe™ is produced from UK grown hemp and flax and offers a renewable and low-carbon means of insulating lofts, walls and floors. The product has many desirable performance qualities – it has a thermal conductivity of 0.039 W/mK, which boosts thermal comfort by reducing overheating in summer and damping internal temperature fluctuations. It has immense breathability as its hemp fibres can absorb and release moisture without damage or the loss of all important thermal performance.

Suitable for lofts, walls and floors applications, Breathe’s™ semi-rigid batts are available in thicknesses of 50mm, 75mm or 100mm. It comes in standard sizes of 1,200mm x 575mm and 1,200mm x 375mm.
