Feebly hydraulic lime putty produced from argillaceous limestone, thoroughly slaked and stored for 100 days minimum. A gritty, gray lime with colour and texture more appropriate for historic restoration than high calcium or dolomitic limes. Hydraulicity can be increased with Polestar.
PolestarPolestar is a highly reactive pozzolan. Pozzolans improve the strength and durability of lime mortars.
Pozzolans are defined as materials which, though not cementitious in themselves, contain constituents which will combine with lime at ordinary temperatures in the presence of water to form stable insoluble compounds possessing cementing properties.
P.B.D.(Pozzolanic Brick Dust)Crushed pozzolanic brick has been commonly added to lime mortars since Roman times. Pozzolanic additives contain reactive silicates which react with lime in the presence of water.
Unilit Fen X (formerly B-Fluid X) - Natural Hydraulic Lime
Unilit Fen X is an inorganic binder based on natural hydraulic lime. Pozzolana can be added if necessary or desired, to adjust the degree of hydraulicity of the product. Unilit Fen X is characterized by a low content of soluble salts. The binder is perfectly stable and delicately prepared so as to limit problems of micro fissures and premature drying.
