  Straw clay is highly compatible with framed wall systems because it is a non-load bearing material. Light straw clay can be infilled in nearly every wall framing system, be it timber framing, pole /building-with-light-straw-clay-ze0zzmos.

Strength Testing of Stucco and Plaster Veneer Straw-Bale Walls, by   Clay's affinity for water is higher than that of straw, which can be seen in a drying rate comparison of a straw-only wall section vs. a straw-clay wall section seen below: The straw-only sample dries faster at first. Note that once dry, however, the clay's imperviousness to water prevents the straw-clay sample from picking up moisture during a The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society (TMS) is a member-driven international professional society dedicated to fostering the exchange of learning and ideas across the entire range of materials science and engineering, from minerals processing and primary metals production, to basic research and the advanced applications of  › Materials › Characterization & Evaluation of Materials.

This fulfills the same function as having higher clay content in the plaster. Using clay slip instead of water is beneficial when the substrate is excessively silty or when applying plaster to straw bales or light straw :// Materials, an international, peer-reviewed Open Access journal.
