Pozzolan Limewash has been achieves it’s adhesive properties through the inclusion of tiny glass beads. These beads replace the odorous tallow used traditionally to increase waterproofing, as well as pale boiled linseed oil and traces of natural, pure salt. Pozzolan Limewash delivers an external coating that both protects and decorates exterior surfaces.
Highly protective, easy application: These unique ingredients aid the performance and adhesive qualities of the coating and help create a long-lasting bond that will not flake, peel or blister. The linseed oil provides enhanced protective qualities and makes the Limewash slightly thinner. This allows for easier application and penetration on mixed substrates.
Mould and fungi inhibitor: The addition of pure, natural salt may sound unusual, however, the Ph value of salt means it is a natural killer of insects and fungi. It is therefore ideal for exterior use on the north side of buildings which are shaded from sunlight and tend not to dry out during winter months. It also helps maintain the coatings natural colour and prevents it turning green when exposed to rain and weathering.
