BioPowder.com manufactures a wide range of natural insulation materials. We provide numerous biological fibre products to enhance the insulation properties of building materials such as mortar, plaster and composite coatings. In addition, our product portfolio includes insulating infill granules for brick or wall systems.
Insulation materials come in diverse shapes and textures. Traditionally, synthetic products such as fiberglass or mineral wool have been used in construction. Also polyurethane foam (PU foam) or polystyrene foam (Styrofoam) are popular lightweight insulators. In recent years, concerns about eco-friendliness and recyclability have led manufacturers of insulation materials to look for greener alternatives. This is where BioPowder.com offers effective and innovative solutions: our natural fiber and powder products – made entirely from fruit stones and shells – can
With the above applications in mind, we have developed our Olive Stone Insulator – strong, thermally performant granules of variable sizes. With a density of 0.6-0.65g/l, they have a light weight and can adapt to almost any material mix.
In contrast to other plant fibres, e.g. wood, flax, hemp, straw or husks, their moisture absorption is very limited, which makes them stable fillers in water-based or liquid formulas. Thermal retention properties of olive stones are superior to any chemicals and three times as high as for pebbles. In construction, this feature makes them sought-after alternatives for sand/silica or marble.
Similar to cherry pits, refined olive stones are popular fillers for heating pillows. When put in the oven or microwave, they can retain the heat for a long time. Likewise, they can absorb and retain coolness and serve as an infill for cooling pads. Whereas cherry stones are used as a whole (with the seed), we provide ground granules with varying textures – for the ideal haptic of any cushion.
Moreover, the following features make olive stones stand out as optimal natural insulating solutions:
