Naturalpaint brings to Romania an innovative product, very important for the green building market. The product Thermo-Hanf based on hemp is manufactured in Nordlingen/Bayern, Germany.  It is a perfect solution for the attic, between the rafters, and also for the exterior walls.

The thermo-technical properties are impressive. The U value for a thickness of 120 mm is 0.28 [W/m2K]. For the same thickness, the polystyrene plates   have the value 0.40 [W/m2K]. Besides the technical aspects, Thermo-Hanf has obtained numerous certifications from the authorities in Europe and Germany. Being 100% environmental friendly, the embodied energy is minimum 50-90 kWh/mc , on the other end is the insulation based on wood fibers, 600-1500 kWh/mc.
