FLAX AND HEMP PRODUCTS

The building sector is an emerging particularly dynamic market for hemp fiber applications. Sustainable  eco construction and home furnishings account for a 10% share of the hemp market.

HEMP CONCRETE BLOCKS
 

CHANVRIBLOC

Hemp concrete and mortar are organic composites made of water with lime as a binder, and hemp aggregate. This mixture is cold-pressed into blocks and open-air dried. Walls built of hemp concrete blocks on a wood frame store from 14 to 35 kg of CO² equivalent per m².

 

  • The blocks are fire resistant and permeable to water vapour, creating a hygienic, non-allergenic environment. The insulating coatings used make the rooms especially comfortable because they improve surface heat transfer.
INSULATING WOOLS

TECHNICHANVRE

Hemp and flax wools provide hygienic, environment-friendly heat and sound insulation for walls, ceilings and floors.

These fibers " breathe", so they help to regulate the flow of water vapour that arises from the differences in indoor and outdoor temperatures. This type of insulation absorbs moisture from the air and releases it to the exterior when the ambient humidity decreases.

Unlike glass fiber, these natural fibers will not irritate the skin or eyes during installation. They have a very low static charge and no electromagnetic current conductivity.

FLAX AND HEMP PARTICLE BOARD FOR WALLS
 

SANOPAN

SANOMUR

Flax shives or hemp chaff are used to make lightweight yet sturdy particle board that is perfect for walls, door cores or counters. These are machined using the same tooling as wood particle board. In 22-mm or more thicknesses, they stay fire-resistant and flame retardant for at least 30 minutes and can be mixed with wood fiber aggregates. The core of such panels consists of agglomerate lignocellulosic flax particles that are adhesive-bonded and pressed.

TECHNICAL FABRICS
     

 NON WOVEN TEXILIS 2  

TEXILIS
texilis.com

There are a number of potential applications for this wet-laid nonwoven material, e.g indoor blinds, sun-screens, wall coverings, stretch ceilings, signs, shoe soles and tablecloths, as a function of how the material is treated ( non-combustible treatment, waterproofing, colours, coatings, etc.) the fabric comes in a number of different areal weights from 80g/m² to 400g/m², in a width of 2.20m. It can be reinforced with a textile grid and micro-perforated (80 to 110g/m²). No binders are incorporated into the fabric, it consists uniquely of flax fibers and viscose.
