The quicklime thus obtained is then “quenched” with water, giving rise to lime putty. At this point, the product is left to cure in specific tanks, for at least 8-10 months: in this period the hexagonal crystals, composing the structure of the product, are gradually and slowly arranged in many parallel rows, making the lime putty more compact, sticky, tenacious and workable, therefore cured and ready for use. Then, the product is filtered in a specific system, with further addition of clean water, until lime putty with fineness lower or equal to 200 μm is obtained.
Thanks to its natural characteristics, this product is perfectly in line with the current green building philosophy, always more attentive to health and safeguarding the individual and the environment.
LIME PUTTY, filtered to 200 μm, can be used for painting and murals, skimming, bas-reliefs and Marmorino finishes of high aesthetic and architectural value and frescoes.
