Tow linen, building in bales ... building tow, traditional, domestic, technical material that has proven itself in construction.
tow is short, loose, coarse fibers of flax, hemp and other bast crops. The main and most commonly used purpose of ordinary linen tow is the insulation of wooden houses by compacting the log crowns. It is used as a cushioning, upholstery material, which in turn provides both good insulation due to the capillary structure of the culture, and the prevention of rotting of the material.
environmental cleanliness, excellent heat-saving properties - all this is also from a number of its advantages. Due to its resistance to temperature changes, non-gluing of structures, and in the future - the absence of shrinkage of the building, tow has also found its application in residential panel construction. Do not forget about its inexpensive cost, as also an important factor today. Another fairly common area of application for tow is plumbing work, laying pipelines, chasing, and installing cable networks. Here, as a rule, tow is impregnated with a special antiseptic material, resin.
construction tow has its own characteristics and advantages in the erection of residential structures (it has shorter fibers and does not have tangled properties). unlike mounting foam, it does not have gluing properties, thus, it does not complicate the process of shrinkage of wooden log cabins.
when carrying out caulk work, preference is given to tape tow, which has significant stable abilities. It does not lie down prior to "fluffing", and also has an equal thickness and width, which creates maximum convenience for further caulking
