Limelite plasters from Tarmac offer a moisture-absorbing alternative to gypsum plasters, which, although a common choice in most new build properties or standard refurbishments, are susceptible to moisture retention and can cause long-term damp problems.

For those working with protected or heritage properties where long-term preservation takes priority, a gypsum plaster should be ruled out. Heritage projects need to consider both the immediate requirements of the build and how the build will stand the test of time.

A lime-based plaster such as Tarmac’s Limelite uses moisture-absorbing properties to reduce the risk of condensation and therefore control the atmospheric humidity. There are four Limelite plasters available in the range – Renovating, Impact Finishing, Backing and Onecoat – alongside mortars, renders and grout.
