We will work with you for your custom blend mortars using custom sand and pigments (contact us for pricing) Historically speaking, mortar colors were usually achieved by using sand to reach the desired color. Although we carry pigments that can be used to match your exisiting mortar color, we will help you acheive the color you need using sand.
All of our natural lime mortar, stucco and plaster products come premixed in plastic buckets with properly graded sand and the correct amount of our natural lime putty.
Our lime putty has a calcium content of 98%, a PH of 12 and is a highly reactive carbonating type of lime. It is specially processed during the firing and the slaking process which makes it the best in the world. No Portland cements are added to any of our lime products.
