High calcium Fat Lime Putty (Class A), well matured.
This material is soft, slow setting, breathable and extremely flexible, perfect for conservation of old buildings.
The lime putty is manufactured by slaking quicklime in clean water then leaving it to mature.
It sets by carbonation; it is carbon in the atmosphere that causes it to set.
The material is packaged in a tough, air-tight tub which will prevent it setting.
It can be stored indefinitely if it is kept sealed, air-tight inside the tub.
