Mechanical Spray application
The mechanical spray application of hempcrete is relatively new to the hempcrete industry yet carries much more benefits.
To describe simply, the hemp and the binder are transferred from various machines through pipes and meet at a distribution point known as a lance. The application does not require premixing as the ingredients chemically bond in the air as it is applied. This method allows excellent consolidation and consistency of the product.
The distribution of hempcrete through this method is calculated at an average of 5m3/Hour.
Spray applying hempcrete requires only one side of the wall to be formed, to which saves on waste, material and labour.
Typically, this method is not for visual effect or to be left exposed, however is up for discretion. (see cast in situ application)
Rendering (with lime render) is highly recommended due to the future performance of this application. Using the BCA approved method we can achieve great thermal, sound and fire resistant properties.
The performance of the product is enhanced with spray application, it is a perfect solution to using hempcrete for its properties in a more convenient and faster method that makes hempcrete projects more affordable.
