THERMAL AND ACOUSTIC INSULATING MATERIAL IN VEGETABLE KENAF FIBER

Kenaf is a vegetable fiber similar to hemp that has been used by man since ancient times. The plant that bears the same name (Hibiscus cannabinus) from which the fiber is extracted belongs to the family of malvaceae (mallows) and is a fully renewable crop with year-end harvests. Considering the material's complex eco-balance, the qualities of Kenaf are many. This plant absorbs more carbon dioxide than any other plant-able species; it purifies the ground of toxic elements and produces a large quantity of oxygen for the soil; it has a good tolerance to drought; its cultivation does not require the use of herbicides and pesticides; process scraps from fiber extraction can be reused as fodder and ecological fuel.

Energy consumption of the production cycle from the plant to the finished product is rather low. To obtain NATURTHERM KE , the kenaf fibers, previously mixed with  a low-melt fiber, are compacted by a mechanical and  bonding process, without the use of any type of chemical additive. The intrinsic qualities of kenaf fibers make the materials immune to attacks by insects and rodents, and give them excellent resistance to mold and putrefaction.

The structural characteristics of kenaf give NATURTHERM KE outstanding insulating power from a thermal and acoustic point of view, remarkable  tensile strength and good elasticity. Easy to apply in both panels and rolls, NATURTHERM KE is a light and flexible material with a high content of air that allows for the highest level of thermal insulation.

NATURTHERM KE is the ideal insulating material for eco-friendly construction and to guarantee a natural and pleasant climatic comfort inside the living space.
