HEMP PRODUCT: Insulation

SUB MARKETS: Construction, Green Building, Natural Insulation

Day three of our 31 Days of Hemp campaign includes an excellent alternative for energy-efficient builders and environmentally-conscious homeowners: hemp insulation. Hemp insulation offers a healthier option to the status-quo synthetic materials, such as fiberglass batting, and has a comparable R-value at 3.5 per inch of thickness. Sometimes combined with flax products and treated with a non-toxic compound, the material can be fire retardant and is naturally insect repellent.

Other great benefits of the cellulose fiber include:

  • Moisture buffer and condensation regulator
  • Reduced risk of dampness and mold
  • Longevity
  • Breathable
  • Non-toxic
  • Hypo-allergenic
  • Dense, resistant to slumping
  • Floor, wall, and roof applications
  • Sustainable energy efficiency
  • Carbon-negative/sink production
