Mapei Mape-Antique Intonaco NHL is a transpirant breathable render for use on heritage, listed or older properties of historical interest.
Mapei Mape-Antique Intonaco NHL is best used as a breathable render for old stone, brick, tuff and mixed walls as a base render prior to application of a Mapei paint system or decorative textured masonry paint.
Intonaco NHL is also suitable for rendering down to the level of the stone on walls not subject to capillary rising damp or the rebuilding old lime-based render deteriorated by the action of atmospheric agents and environmental conditions or by ageing.
Some application examples include:
- New layers of internal and external transpirant render applied with a rendering machine or by trowel on stone, brick, tuff and mixed walls without capillary rising damp
- New render or rebuilding old lime-based and/or weak render on stone, brick, tuff and mixed walls, including those of historical and artistic interest with a conservation order or under the protection of the National Trust
- Touching-up and plumbing facing walls with gaps and/or uneven surfaces
- Pointing between layers of stone, brick and tuff on masonry with a natural-finish.
Mape-Antique Intonaco NHL is a cement-free, pre-blended mortar in powder form for render based on natural hydraulic lime (NHL), Eco-Pozzolan, natural sand, special admixtures and micro-easy to apply by spraying or with a trowel on both vertical surfaces and on ceilings.
The properties of mortar made using Mape-Antique Intonaco NHL, such as mechanical strength, modulus of elasticity and porosity, are very similar to the ones of a mortar made using lime, lime-pozzolan and hydraulic lime originally used in the construction of buildings.
Compared with these types of mortar, however, Mape-Antique Intonaco NHL also contains properties which make the product resistant to various aggressive chemical-physical phenomena. This includes freeze-thaw cycles, the leaching action of rainwater, alkali-aggregate reactions and the formation of cracks caused by plastic shrinkage.

Apply using a rendering machine or trowel. For full preparation and application guidance, see the Product Data Sheet.
If the surface of the render is to be smoothed off and then decorated or protected, use thin layers of a coloured coating product such as Silexcolor Tonachino silicate or Silancolor Tonachino silixane after priming the surface with a primer from the corresponding ranges of products (Silexcolor Primer or Silancolor Primer).
Always wait until the render is completely cured, usually approximately 7 days per cm of thickness, before applying any type of thin-layered coloured coating product or paint.
For constructions particularly exposed to rain, if the render does not require any dressing coat, it may be protected with a transpirant product such as Antipluviol S transparent, water-repellent siloxane resin-based impregnator in solvent or Antipluviol W transparent, water-repellent siloxane resin-based impregnator in water dispersion.
