Hemp fibers have natural insulation characteristics which is why they are used as additives in manufacturing thermal insulation.
How it’s Made:
Hemp insulating products are produce by mixing hemp fibers, synthetic or natural binder and additional materials that increase mold proliferation and increase fire resistance.(1)
Compared to cotton or wool, hemp insulates better. Hemp as an insulator is one of the popular benefits of hemp.(2)
Too much damp can influence the insulating properties of hemp in a bad way. It is not recommended to be use in damp rooms. Hemp insulation is also slightly more expensive compared to other insulation materials.(3)
A low-carbon and durable alternative insulation material. Since Ancient times hemp has been used for ropes, clothing, sails and much more.(4)
Looking to the Future:
The sustainability of hemp insulation will flourish in diverse condition considering the annual growth rate and versatility of hemp as an agricultural crop.(5)
