Frequently Asked Questions

What can I use NHL 2 lime mortar for?

NHL 2 is suitable for low density masonry or non-exposed areas. Soft, crumbling or flakey bricks, sandstone or limestone. Internal work or sheltered areas with minimal exposure.

What is hydraulic lime mortar?

It�s a traditional lime mortar, it does not contain cement but is mixed and applied the same way as a cement mortar. This makes it practical for modern construction. It has the ability to set underwater, hence the name hydraulic.

Do I need to add cement to make it set?

Absolutely not, hydraulic lime sets just fine. It is often confused with hydrated lime which can be added to cement mortar to increase workability. Genuine traditional lime mortars do not contain cement, ever.
