Description

K Lime is a range of natural hydraulic lime mortars for use in stonemasonry, pointing, bricklaying, block laying and as a plaster and render applications. The range is made from a blend of natural hydraulic lime, carefully selected white limestone, graded sand and other performance enhancing additives derived from natural sources.

The range includes:

  • K Lime Coarse 413 for use in building random rubble and coarse stonework to a nominal joint thickness of 25mm and for plastering or dubbing out irregular backgrounds and where heavier coats are required. It can also be used as a hydraulic lime floor screed.
  • K Lime Setting 213 for use in pointing, building bricks, blocks and cut stone for a nominal joint thickness of 8-10 mm and for plastering at 8-10 mm thickness. It can also be used as a bedding for natural stone floor tiles.
  • K Lime Finishing 112 for use in pointing, building dresssed stone for a nominal joint thickness of 4-6 mm and for plastering at 2-4 mm thickness where it can be steel floated for a fine finish. It can also be used as a bedding for natural stone floor tiles.
