[Cob] Asphalt Emulsion (AE)Pack McKibben gakayaker at yahoo.com

I'd like to pose another question to the list. I've amended my plans to include the use of Asphalt Emulsion over my earthbag wall and then use a lime render on top of that. Wanting to build as naturally as possible, I wonder if the use of Asphalt Emulsion, is the classic problem/balance of using what will work and building as natural as possible. I did a google search to educate myself about AE and wonder if this is breathable, since it has asphalt cement in it? My neighbor tried an adobe papercrete mix on her earthbag walls, and now its all pulling away from the wall. It did not attach to the poly bags the way she'd hoped. I'm going to tell her about using AE and need to be able to explain why this is used, it not being the most earth friendly, in my thinking, at least. --------------------------------- Do you Yahoo!?
