ABSTRACT:
The paper presents the results of research composites produced on the basis of binder (building lime, cement and dolomite) with the participation of hemp shives. Their main of properties were determined, i.e.: bulk density, thermal conductivity and compressive strength. The results show that the lime-cement composites with participation of hemp shives produced are lightweight and have low thermal conductivity and apparent density. They are characterized by very low strength properties compared to traditional building materials.
