Fine Hemp Fiber - (Lime plastering)
Hemp Building Company uses fine hemp fibers in our lime plasters/renders to improve tensile strength and reduce shrinkage cracking in the Base coats and brown coats. The fiber is cut into 1/2" - 1" pieces and slowly added to the mortar while mixing. The fiber must be thoroughly mixed in to the mortar before use. We recommend using approximately 3oz. of Fiber per 5 gallon bucket.
