Cheshire mix

…is made from a high calcium lime/non-hydraulic lime blended with carefully selected aggregates. The different aggregates help to provide a good range of colours and textures.  Cheshire mix gives a coarse green-grey mortar.

These lime mortars require exposure to Carbon Dioxide in the presence of moisture to harden. It is therefore important to use these mortars at an appropriate time of the year and to protect them from drying too rapidly. Application guides are printed on the bags and available below, so don’t be put off from using them – the results are well worth it!

Properties : the most flexible and vapour permeable/breathable of the lime product family, so highly suitable for solid wall construction buildings, old garden walls etc.
