Product Description

Timbercrete, designed and manufactured by Timbercrete, an Australian firm, is a hybrid blend of natural organic material (a blend of waste timber or cellulose) combined with masonry binders (cement and sand), that produce a larger, more flexible, high insulation and lighter alternative construction material. This product was designed by Peter Collier, a professional potter and ceramic technician who was looking for a way to build an affordable family home. He started experimenting with raw materials, using his experience with clay and eventually came across the blend of cellulose, cement, sand and binders that has been patented as Timbercrete today. Timbercrete is produced in a range of products of bricks, panels, pavers and blocks.
