Remmers Historic Lime Mortar is a base mixture “dry slaked”, cement-free sand-lime mortar) for the production of mortars and renders according to historical models with the addition of local aggregates. Historic Lime Mortar was developed especially for the repair and restoration of historical substrates.
It can be used for:
- As a render mortar
Historic Lime Mortar does not have any "restoration render properties" and is therefore only permanently durable on unloaded (non damp, non contaminated by salts) substrates. The sulphate content of the substrate may not exceed a max. of 0.5 % by mass. When used in plinth areas, make sure that Historic Lime Mortar is protected from rising damp and/or heavier splash water loads.
Small lumps of lime are one of the characteristic features of many historical mortars. These are formed when pieces of quick lime are "dry" slaked. Since these small lumps of lime have been completely slaked, they do not have a "popping effect" but they do have an autogenous healing effect on cracks and lateral detachment because of the dissolving and transport processes that take place. They are not available as a primary binder in the mortar.
