Rice Hull/ Husk Reinforced

General

We purchase rice hulls/husks from a processor based in the United States. Rice hulls are the shell that surrounds the grain of rice. Our processor hammer mills these hulls into a granular form that we incorporate into our compound.

A unique characteristic of the rice hull is that it is naturally flame resistant. Rice hulls will not flame up. When burning occurs they only smolder.

  • Dimensionally stable
  • Low moisture absorption
  • Lower specific gravity than minerals
  • Excellent chemical and mold resistance
  • Naturally flame retardant
  • Colorable / Unique – different than wood
  • Good for traditional mineral filled applications
