Heritage Lime Basecoat EWI-292

The Heritage Lime Basecoat is a substrate preparation layer, designed for application onto walls with a low/medium salt content. Due to the presence of lime within the basecoat, this product is ideal for use with lime render systems on heritage restoration projects. The Lime Basecoat creates a smooth, vapour permeable surface which is ideal for the application of the Heritage Lime Render.

Intended Uses

The Heritage Lime Basecoat is ideal for use within a lime render system. It is light grey in colour and can be painted or finished with lime products to achieve a smooth, traditional finish.
