Renewable / raw ingredients
Cellulose, the primary raw ingredient of SonaSpray, contains wood, cotton and other rapidly renewable natural resources. These materials can effectively lower the carbon footprint of the building project by sequestering rich stores of carbon for the life of the structure or application.
