This work studied on the possibility to produce the Low Thermal Lime - Hull Ash Adobe (LHA) which is the combination of hull ash mixed with lime and cement. The study of the compressive strength and the modulus of rupture properties shows that they increase with increasing cured time but decrease if the combination of hull ash is higher than 25%. For the thermal conductivity properties of LHA, result shows that it decreases with increasing hull ask contents. Also, the water absorption property is higher than that of the control cement brick. By summary, the appropriate composition of LHA is 5% Portland cement type 1, 10% lime and hull ask 25% (C5:L10:HA25.0). This product can use as the non-loading bearing type according to the standard TCPS 602-2547 and TIS 77-2545.
