Concrete, Cement, Lime Plaster Products Industry?

Lime has been an important component of mortars for over 2000 years. The characteristics of hydrated lime provide unique benefits in masonry applications that distinguish cement-lime mortars from other masonry mortar materials. Major benefits include:

Flexural bond strength

Cement and Type S Hydrated Lime mortars have been shown to have high levels of flexural bond strength. High tensile bond strength is enhanced by the following properties of cement-lime mortars:

  1. Tensile Bond Strength – This is the strength of the mortar that holds the masonry units together. High tensile bond strength is developed by the following mortar characteristics:
    • Lime provides high water retention that allows for maximum early curing of the cementitious materials.
    • High initial flow which permits easy complete coverage of masonry units.
    • The low air content of cement-lime mortar increases bond strength.
  2. Extent of Bond – The extent of bond is the percent of brick to which the mortar adheres. The low air content and the fineness and stickiness of hydrated lime particles increase the extent of bond of mortar to brick. These factors allow cement-lime mortars to penetrate deeply into the brick and seal the brick/mortar interface.
  3. Durability of Bond – (See Durability section below)

There are a number of studies that demonstrate the superior bond strength of cement-lime mortars. For copies of these studies, pleasecontact Graymont.

Hydrated lime can be added to concrete mix used to make block and other concrete products in order to produce a denser, more water-resistant product.
It is composed of lime and sand with water and is one of the oldest known types of mortars. … Fat lime mortar is used for plastering, and hydraulic lime mortar is for masonry works. The flexible properties of cement mortar have completely replaced lime mortar in the market.

Lime plaster sets up to a solid mass that is durable yet relatively flexible. Hydraulic lime plaster is not as hard as cement plaster. … Compared to cement plaster, plaster made from hydrated lime is less brittle and less prone to cracking, requiring no expansion joints.

Lime mortar today is primarily used in the conservation of buildings originally built using lime mortar, but may be used as an alternative to ordinary portland cement. It is made principally of lime (hydraulic, or non hydraulic), water and an aggregate such as sand.
