Natural Hydraulic Lime (NHL) 5.0


is the most durable of the NHL’s, we recommend this for wet and damp locations that have full exposure to the weather, skyward facing joints, and hard brick and stone. This is used as limecrete and hempcrete binder.

  • Marine Environments

NHL 5.0 offers the maximum strength and durability of the 3 classifications of  NHL’s. Mix with sand to make Limecrete for floors. Mix with Course Hemp for Hempcrete walls. Hempcrete walls are a green healthy renewable environmentally friendly, resistant to: viruses, bacteria, and mold, alternative to today’s modern drywall, gypsum, and concrete. Roundtower NHL’s will set in the presence of water which makes them ideal for use on exterior applications.
