The Lime Lab

Lime Lab- Lime Green research department

Lime Lab is our research department, and the place where we create new products, improve existing ones and look for even better ways of using lime products in green building.

It's here that we constantly analyse and refine the formulation of our lime products, plaster materials and insulation materials so they can best meet the needs of self-builders, tradespeople, architects and specifiers.

And it's this attention to detail that has helped Lime Green become a leading innovator in the marketplace, enabling us to develop products like our Ultra range of lime renders and lime plasters which incorporates insulating glass beads.

We've carried such fresh thinking into other areas too, with the recent development of Warmshell, a high-insulation structural system that can be either retro-fitted to poorly insulated older properties, or specified to give new timber-framed buildings even better thermal performance. Insulation materials such as this will be of crucial benefit to developers as the Government's ‘Green Deal' rolls out.

Alongside this, we are continually working with those tasked with conserving older properties, by creating for them uniquely specified lime grouts, lime mortars, lime renders and lime plasters that maintain and complement the original integrity of their buildings.

So, with all this expertise to hand, if you have any particular lime-based building requirements, why not take advantage of our Lime Lab expertise? Call us on 01952 728611 or email us.

 

 

Why Lime?

It is a common misconception that lime as a building material is somehow 'out of date', and that modern materials have superseded it.

Conservation

Our range of lime products are ideal for conservation projects both large and small. Naturally flexible, they will accommodate minor building movements without the cracking and weakening that would occur with cement-based mortars.
