Daub  (made of straw-clay)
Straw-clay is used primarily in building conservation and restoration as a daub for wattle-and-daub constructions. The daub is thrown vigorously onto the wattle made of willow rods and worked in to form a wall surface. Straw-clay mass is also used as a fill material to increase the weight of timber joist ceilings.

DIN norm
DIN norms stipulate defined quality standards that products and manufacturers need to fulfil so that consumers can be sure that products are of a comparable quality throughout Germany. Currently, there are no binding DIN norms for earth building but as of June 2012 draft norms do now exist for earth bricks (DIN 18945), earth masonry mortar (DIN 18946) and clay plaster mortars (DIN 18947) that detail performance requirements and quality control procedures. The draft norms are available from the Deutsche Institut für Normung (www.din.de). conluto’s managing director Jörg Meyer is a member of the Earth DIN Norm Working Group and assists first-hand in the development of norms for earth building materials.
