Natural plaster for sustainable building
Copemalt - Refurbishing plaster which limits mould formation and avoids moisture stagnation.
Copemalt is a breathable refurbishing plaster which allows high evaporation on a wide surface and thus, it limits mould formation and moisture stagnation.
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 addition of cocciopesto (brick powder) gives the plaster great hygroscopic and breathability features, moreover it is very easy to apply and to maintain. Plasters made up of cocciopesto are designed not only for new buildings, but they are commonly used also for the restoration of historical buildings.
Copemalt is to be applied with a spatula, then worked with a wood or aluminum a straight edge and finished with a plastic trowel. It can be applied on brick, concrete stone walls, but also on not plastered hollow bricks. It is to be applied with a spatula and then worked with a straight edge and finished with a plastic or wood trowel. The product is to be applied on a clean surface and in case there is a pre-existing plaster, the wall needs to be sanded before the application of Copemalt.
Copemalt is sold as dosed mortar in 22kg containers with a 4kg cocciopesto bag apart. 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.
