The composite material is composed of low alkaline magnesium oxychloride cement as base material and plant straw fiber as reinforcement material. Further, the thermal conductivity was measured to characterize the thermal insulation properties of composite materials. The influence of straw fiber on the frost resistance of composite materials was investigated after 50 freeze-thaw cycles.
