Lime plaster - a building material with tradition and future

Lime plasters consist of a mixture of calcium hydroxide (hydrated lime) and sand. Pure mineral lime was already used as a building material in Mesopotamia around 10,000 BC. In classical antiquity, lime plaster was used for the construction of cultural sites. The Romans brought the building material to Central Europe. Lime plaster still has a lasting influence on architecture today, mainly in the countries of the Mediterranean region.

This tradition has prevailed because fully mineral walls with a lime finish have a positive effect on the indoor climate in many ways: they prevent the mould growth and, thanks to their natural moisture balance, ensure a healthy indoor climate, i.e neither too dry nor too humid.

Lime plaster is particularly recommended for rooms with high humidity rate, like kitchens, bathrooms, sleeping rooms and children’s rooms.

Lime has a natural alkalinity (high pH value) and is therefore antiseptic. Mould does not find a breeding ground on lime plaster. The pores of the plaster have the potential to absorb and break down pollutants from the air. In addition, excess moisture is extracted from the room air and later released again. No other wall coating can do this in this form. And the effect is noticeable: a pleasant, healthy indoor climate. Lime plasters do not replace daily airing. But they do demonstrably ensure a healthy indoor climate and increase well-being. And what's more, all products are free of preservatives, solvents or plasticizers, making them ideal for allergy sufferers.

Proven, healthy, ecological

You should be able to breathe easy at home. Lime plaster interior walls are the room air filter for your personal well-being. Although they are no substitute for adequate ventilation of living spaces, they do prevent damage to health and offer lasting protection against mould.

Lime plaster walls are not only healthy but also extremely attractive surfaces with countless possibilities for individual design. They the support both a sober, reduced design and warm, Mediterranean interiors. The different structures, the wide variety of colour shades and different processing methods give every lime plaster surface a unique appearance. Whether white or coloured, matt or glossy, rough, smooth or marbled: Every wall becomes unique.

Lime plasters on interior walls

Simple and noble

Lime plaster surfaces - in contrast to surfaces treated with emulsion paints - reflect almost the whole spectrum of sunlight. This high degree of reflection results in quite intense light and brilliant colours. Put together your own personal surface look from the various render structures, grains, colours and texturing techniques and let the combination of beauty and comfort inspire you day after day.

The BIO-lime plaster system shows what it's made of, especially when it comes to renovation. There is no quicker and more effective way to upgrade your living environment than with

Lime plaster is safe and quick to apply and is working on almost all substrates. It is antistatic and therefore does not attract dirt particles. Even the fogging effect known from dispersion paints, which leads to dark discolouration in the corners of the room, does not occur with lime plasters.

Why lime plasters on interior walls?

  • as a contemporary interior design for modern living
  • as a healthy and mould-resistant building material
  • as a quick upgrading solution on all substrates

Lime plaster surfaces are not only healthy for the home, they are also very much in vogue in modern interior design.

Lime render on facades

No compromises

And just as lime-based interior plaster removes moisture from mould, lime facade render also ensures dry and thus clean surfaces. This is because the hydrophilic surface of lime render facades absorbs moisture and quickly releases it again. This naturally removes the moisture and thus the basis for algae and fungi. Furthermore, lime render is antistatic and does not attract dirt particles from the environment like other surfaces. And last but not least, weathered lime render facades have a self-healing power to a certain extent. The render surface is covered with tiny calcium carbonate crystals through natural reaction with the environment over time. These overlay and seal small hairline cracks and damage at the render surface.

The extended renovation intervals make the exterior render system a worthwhile investment all round. 
Lime plaster surfaces are not only healthy for the home, they are also very much in vogue in modern interior design.

Why lime render on facades?

  • almost unlimited design possibilities
  • the ideal building material for an eco-friendly construction method
  • offers natural protection against soiling
