Lime Thin Coat Renders are a new breed of natural hydraulic lime renders.

Natural Hydraulic Lime (NHL) has been used for hundreds of years across a broad range of substrates. Lime render is by far the most breathable render product available; lime render expands and contracts with the building which makes it particularly suited to older buildings or wooden framed buildings.

Lime renders are eco-friendly as they absorb CO2 out of the atmosphere while curing. When fully cured the lime render sets back to lime stone state and provides a very durable finish.

Venetian Plaster Company use KEIM Lime render and KEIM Mineral paints supplied by Isle of Man KEIM Agent – Lightfast Ltd. Please click here to find out more.

    The recently spray applied acrylic based paint coatings were completely unsuitable, had failed and required removal.

    KEIM paint stripper was used in conjunction with the THERMATECH high pressure steam cleaner to remove the existing coatings. Following structural repairs, KEIM Contact Plus, a high build mineral paint, was applied to assist and equalise the surfaces before the final coats of Keim Soldalit-ME mineral paints.

    The Thermatech/STS7M paint removal was undertaken by Building Conservation (Isle of Man)
    The decorative finishes were completed by Venetian Plaster Company Ltd.
    The specifier was Lightfast Limited.
    The resulting high quality finish looks great and will last for many years to come.
