Energy Efficiency

Hydraulic lime mortars breathable nature enhances thermal performance, regulating indoor temperatures naturally and reducing the need for energy-intensive heating and cooling systems.

Durability

Lime mortar's flexibility allows for natural movement in structures, preventing cracks and enhancing long-term durability, reducing the frequency of repairs and resource consumption.

Image

Recyclability

Lime mortar can be easily reused or recycled, minimising construction waste and contributing to a circular economy by reducing the demand for new raw materials.

Air Quality

The moisture and humidity within the building is better controlled by using a lime mortar. Allowing the building to breathe instead of trapping condensation and moisture within the structure, creates a healthier indoor environment.

Crucially, better moisture control can also help the prevention of mound and fungi inside the building.

Reducing Waste

Lime mortars have a longer ‘spot’ life than cement mortars – The mortar remains useable for a longer time after mixing, increasing productivity. 

This increased productivity can lead to improved economy and less waste.

BREEAM

The use of a sustainable material, a reduction of CO2 emissions, less operational waste and an environmentally friendly 'end of life' are all factors that aid, achieving this accreditation.
