Limesands Going National
Published: 11/07/2016 Written by: Matt Chadwick
We are currently stocking hydrated lime at our key production facilities, enabling us to cover the market Nationally with an offer of Lime-Sand Mortar.
This product is available for delivery in both a loose and bulk bagged format and can be called off, typically, within 48 hours.
The addition of lime within the product negates the need to use admixtures and air entraining agents. Lime offers the consistency required to produce a good “fatty mix” which satisfies the bricklayer by enhancing the laying properties.
From a technical perspective it also offers crack healing benefits. Any hairline cracks which appear within the building are “self healing” a reaction known as autogenous healing. Lime sand mortar can be used within a normal type construction situation, whereby the product has cement and water added to the required consistency, after being mixed within a traditional cement mixer.
The product, however, is often used for training situations at Colleges / Apprentice Training Centres etc. where the Lime Sand only has water added. In this scenario the brick/blockwork can then be knocked down again and recycled.
Please contact our Customer Services Dept for further information on deliveries / prices etc on 0345 3013030. One of our team will be more than happy to process your enquiry.
