MATURE LIME PUTTY
Lime Putty or Non-Hydraulic Lime is produced by slaking fresh Quicklime which is then matured for at least three months. The resulting fat lime putty hardens as a result of exposure to the air and re-carbonation and does not set under water. This lime is often regarded as the most appropriate lime to use in the conservation of old buildings where maximum permeability is required.
Lime Putty is blended with sand to produce plasters and mortars or can be diluted to make lime wash.
Lime putty is the oldest form of lime and can be used to create limewash, plasters, mortars, frescos, fine decorative plasters etc. It is supplied in easy to handle plastic tubs for customers to make into their own usable finished product. Lime putty literally lasts indefinitely, and as long as it is not allowed to dry and carbonate it improves with age. Lime putty mortars usually benefit from mixing up a couple of weeks before use and storing free from suction or the atmosphere before knocking up again on the day of use.
