Qualities of Saint-Astier lime Renders and Plasters
Renders and Plasters designed with Saint-Astier Natural Limes
The bonding characteristics of our Natural Limes Renders and Plasters range, combined with a good background preparation, correct suction control, appropriate binder : aggregate ratio and good workmanship will ensure the durability of a render
Bonding to the background is essential. This is provided by ensuring that the background offers a good key, by controlling the background suction and by casting on/harling at least the first coat on smooth or poorly keyed surfaces
Natural Limes Mortars will combine the ability to resist water penetration whilst allowing the structure to breathe freely. Values above o.5 grams of air per m² per hour are acceptable. Natural Lime Mortars have beetween 0.55 to 0.75 (the value for concrete is about 0.15)
The elasticity of SAINT-ASTIER Natural Limes mortars and renders and the near Zero expansion in Natural Limes Binders are such that joint free contructions is possible
