Exterior finish made with lime putty and hemp
Termofin R - Highly effective country environments!
Termofin R is a natural finish especially designed for improving wall thermal performances. The binder used, long seasoned lime putty, is a natural and ecological product made up of calcium hydroxide (portlandite) and water, with high features of plasticity and thixotropy. Lime putty is a highly breathable material which can absorb and release damp, regulating the level of moisture in the surrounding rooms. Moreover, it is self-sealing, it has a great ability to adhere to many surfaces and it is very workable. The use of hemp in green building brings many benefits: hemp is mould-resistant, hemp made walls are able to absorb damp and then gradually release it, hemp guarantees thermal and acoustic insulation, it offers protection against bugs and microbes and above all it can synthesize carbon and thus reduce pollution, making internal rooms healthier. As for all our products made up of lime putty, Termofin R is very easy and quick to apply and once applied the lime putty becomes harder and harder with the passing of time. Finally, the coloured sands added to the mixture are natural pigments extracted from the subsoil, they are a blend of natural clays, which are not dangerous for human health and for the environment.
Termofin R is to be applied on a clean surface, free from any traces of dust, dirt, oils, greases and waxes.
Termofin R is sold as a pre-dosed mixture. It is our particular choice to sell all our products in paste form, because being the product ready to use the step of the preparation of the product is avoided and the building site remains clean. Moreover, powder products are considered to be as concrete, while our products are 100% natural and when compared to concrete that tends to crush with the passing of time, lime putty products get harder and harder.
Termofin R is to be applied with a stainless steel spatula in a smooth processing with a thickness of about 7/8mm.
