EcoRight Lime Putty

Application

Suitable for repairs to historic buildings and construction of ecologically sound modern buildings. It can be mixed with aggregates to produce Coarse and Fine Stuff mortars and special lime plasters and renders etc.

Description

EcoRight Lime Putty is a non-hydraulic (a fat or pure) lime putty produced from slaked high calcium quicklime (CaO). Its appearance is that of a smooth sticky white mass similar to common toothpaste. It is usually packaged in an airtight manner to prevent setting and often there is excess water to separate the putty from any air in the packaging container (especially when in tubs).


Features and benefits:

  • Ideal for the repair of historic buildings.
  • Can be reworked up to the point of set.
  • Will keep indefinitely as long as the container is air tight and evaporation of moisture does not occur.
  • Mortars made with it are breathable and enables moisture to evaporate.
  • Can be used as a plain or coloured lime wash.
