About Limelite Lime
Limelite Natural Hydraulic Limes are suitable for use in all types of construction - mortar, plasters, renders and screeds. Made from limestone that contain clay and silicates, they offer faster initial setting times on the addition of water other than non-hydraulic lime which sets by carbonation (re-absorbing carbon dioxide (CO2) from the air). They have a higher compressive strength than air lime and are also more durable, making them suitable for use in damp, exposed conditions, coastal areas including under water periodic flood areas
The Limelite range of hydraulic limes includes NHL3.5 a moderately hydraulic general-purpose lime for internal works including standard brick and stonework. NHL5 an eminently hydraulic, faster setting lime is more suitable for use in a range of external work in exposed areas, such as chimneys, under water, canals, floor slabs/underpinning with a requirement for higher strength and reduced permeability.
Suitable for external use including damp or exposed conditions.
The low strength grouts allow for natural movement of historic structures and help to avoid cracking.
Our flowing grouts are suitable for low pressure injection grouting in listed and heritage buildings.
All of our heritage grouts are manufactured in the UK and certified under BES 6001 Responsible sourcing.
