Ty-Mawr LIme Hemp Plaster

Pass+
Hydraulic Hemp Plaster

Ty-Mawr Hydraulic Hemp Plasters are made from hydraulic lime blended with the hemp fibres. In situations where a faster set is required, a dry premixed hemp lime plaster can be a good alternative to the fat lime hemp plaster.

It requires exposure to Carbon Dioxide in the presence of moisture to harden, however, it can be applied in thicker coats than conventional lime plasters. It has good flexural strength and is breathable, which makes it suitable for use in the restoration of old ‘solid wall’ construction buildings as well as ecological new builds.
