The higher permeability of  NHL 2.0 is designed for humid settings, or areas with extreme or fluctuating conditions, to expand and contract with the weather. This allows moisture to escape through the mortar joints or plaster allowing the building to “breathe”. “Breathing” through the mortar joints, plaster, and stucco help to prevent interior molds, mildews, and decaying interior wood.  Modern types of mortar can’t adapt as readily as NHL 2.0 and will trap water, crack and become brittle over time.

Natural Hydraulic Lime (NHL) 2.0 has up to 10% of active hydraulic components, like clay, and will set within one week of mixing with water.

Use NHL 2.0 with Coarse Hemp Shiv to create a plaster basecoat with insulation.

Imported from Portugal, a county with some of the world’s oldest buildings, they’ve created a mortar that will not harm historic structures.
