[papercreters] Re: how long...

thanks for the answers,

the reason why I'm interested to doing this is:
-stronger block with less shrinkage
-faster to dry

I'm trying to build 4" thick pannels, maybe 2X8' to use for insulation but would like it to provide racking strenght also. It's for a timber frame house that will be sprayed on the outside and papercrete on inside, between post.

I'm not talking about mechanical compacting. I taught about a plywood form with drainage hole and putting weight on top... I might try that when I have a few days off...I already made a few blocks without drainage or compaction and was VERY pleased with the result. I even have tested a block letting it stay 6 months on the grass outside. I'm making it dry againt but from what I see, it's still perfect condition.

I'm just trying to improve my process... always strive for excellence!
