Travertine is a natural lime and marble polished plaster with a directional quality similar to natural travertine stone. It is an open, low sheen finish with linear texture and tonal variation.

It is water vapour-permeable and as such is suitable for traditional plastered masonry, including historic buildings.

It comes with Aquawax applied as standard for increased protection against soiling. For breathable water repellency, specify with Armoursil Impregnator + Aquawax.

It is also available to be used as a system with Armourcoat® AntiCrack reinforced gypsum skim coat. Please see specification data for more details.
