HempBoard can be customised for interior or exterior applications. For interior applications HempBoard is re made with the addition of melamine fortified UF resin that meets Europe’s E1 Emissions standard for off-gassing of formaldehyde, the most strict standard for furniture off-gassing in the world. HempBoard is an environmentally sustainable alternative to particleboard that meets or exceeds particleboard industry ANSI specifications. Applications include acoustic ceiling tiles, furniture, cabinets, countertops, door cores and underlayment.
For exterior applications HempBoard is manufactured with phenolic resin, eco-acrylic resin or without any synthetic resin, requiring only the addition of a small quantity of additional lignin (a natural polymer found in all plants and trees). Applications include Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs), as well as a range of exterior applications including roofing shingles and siding.
