TWI will represent ISOBIO at the Surfex exhibition in Coventry (UK) on 22-23 May 2018.
Come to stand 322 to find out more about their novel silica particle treatment that improves the water and fire resistant of bio-based materials. Tests carried out within the ISOBIO project on hemp shiv have shown the treatment confers extensive repellence to liquid water, delays mould growth and acts as a heat shield, delaying ignition time.
Hemp shiv is already by far the most commonly used bio-aggregate in the construction industry, and this treatment could help bring the material further into mainstream use.
The Surfex exhibition brings an essential focus to surface coatings technologies and offers attendees an opportunity to discover new ideas, find answers to technical challenges and source information for immediate use in their working environment.
