We primarily hold sieved putty but small quantities of unsieved may be available. These are suitable for mixing with aggregates to form lime mortars and renders.
Supplied in 15 litre tubs and one tonne bags
Mixing lime putty and sand will require considerable effort. Chopping, kneading and beating the lime putty and sand together is necessary until a uniform colour is achieved. It is tricky to mix these materials to the required consistency using modern site practices.
For optimum results use a mechanical mixer, ideally a roller pan mixer. This mixer combines the materials with no water needed. Other mixers may require more water. Prior to use lime putty mortars definitely benefit from additional maturing and reworking.
Lime putty mortars can be stored indefinitely in plastic buckets (airtight). However keep them away from frost. They will need to be reworked before use.
