In Britain lime putty has been used as a building material for hundreds of years. With the arrival of cement, lime putty mortars became obsolete in new build as they were seen to be slow for building and difficult to use. However, it was soon apparent that cementatious building products had serious drawbacks and specifiers started to look at lime again.
Limetec has produced hydraulic lime mortars that are suitable for the strictures of modern building. Apart from being quick to set and easy to use, Limetec mortars bring back qualities found in the lime putty mortars. Limetec mortars are breathable which allows moisture to escape from a building. They are flexible, allowing reduced need for movement joints. Hydraulic lime mortars are sustainable, as they absorb co2 during curing and they allow building materials to be recycled.
Limetec mortars are factory produced ensuring consistency of quality and colour. Lime mortar is now seen as a viable alternative to cement as a building medium.
Limetec hydraulic lime mortar is a unique blend of sharp sands and hydraulic lime, producing a mortar that is breathable and flexible. Limetec mortar comes in range of colours and can be supplied in 25kg bags, one tonne bulk bags or supplied into silos on site.
Limetec provides technical support to ensure the successful completion of projects, especially for those who are new to the use of hydraulic lime mortars.
