By combining IsoHemp hemp and ProKalk limestone, making hempcrete has never been easier. Simply mix the hemp and limestone with water in the proportions indicated in the table below depending on the desired application.
We recommend using a pan or a concrete mixer. First pour 80% of the required amount of water and ProKalk limestone into the machine. Wait a few minutes to see milt appear.
Then gradually pour in the necessary amount of hemp needed until a pasty mixture is obtained. Add the remaining 20% water and adjust if necessary.
Be careful not to spin the mixture too long to avoid the formation of small balls. Use hempcrete quickly. Repeat as many times as necessary.
