Lancaster Lime Works Lime Putty Plaster/Stucco Basecoat is a non-hydraulic plaster that is pre-mixed with lime, sand and water. Our high-calcium (98%+), High PH (12+), carbonating, high surface area, low magnesium, (slaked) lime putty (calcium hydroxide) in combination with properly graded, quarried (not manufactured) sand, creates a highly durable plaster.
Designed to replace historic lime-sand plaster. With high plasticity and superior work ability, it forms a strong bond with masonry units, wood lath and ensures excellent tensile and compressive strength.
The plaster will keep indefinitely in the original container as long as carbon dioxide cannot enter.
Our lime Putty Plaster/Stucco Basecoat require exposure to carbon dioxide in the presence of moisture to harden.
Preparation of the plaster, the substrate, as well as protection and care after installation, are just as important as correct application techniques. For traditional installation over wood lathe, add real animal hair or our Polypropylene Fiber.
Our lime putty plasters help control the humidity of the internal environment and resists mold and mildew
