Earth plasters & paint
- Clay plaster
We optionally provide finely chopped straw. This comes from wheat cultivation. Wheat stalks dried in open fields are crushed and chopped to obtain a fibre for incorporation into the mix. The length of the fibre varies between one and ten millimetres. The role of the chopped straw can be to distribute the stresses in themixture during drying, to make the mixture lighter, and to give the plaster better resistance to mechanical stresses.
To strengthen a clay plaster mix, straw can be added.
Straw is available in two sizes; 500kg or 1000kg bags.
Straw is a healthy, circular & biobased material that continues to absorb C02 in its growth, is locally sourced & zero waste. The length of the fibre varies between one and ten millimetres.
