Hydraulic Lime Mortar
Lime mortar is a natural accompaniment to handmade bricks, not only for its attractive finish and appearance, but also because of the many unique advantageous properties over cement.
+ Flexibility - Lime mortar is weaker than bricks, masonry and stones, yet it is able to support the full weight of a structure, allowing buildings to flex and move.
+ Breathability - Lime allows moisture to evaporate and walls to breathe.
+ Absorbs Co2 - When the curing process starts lime begins to re-absorb CO2 from the atmosphere.
+ Less Movement - Using lime mortar can decrease the need for and frequency of expansion joints.
+ Increased Longevity & Durability of Brickwork - Any moisture within the brickwork is allowed to escape naturally, reducing the risk of frost damage and ‘blowing’ of brick faces.
+ Recyclability - The use of lime mortar enables masonry to be recycled at the end of the building’s life.
+ Coverage - (Quantitity based on 10mm joints) 25kg bag = 25 bricks
