Saint Astier® Natural Hydraulic Lime and derivative products have been produced by the same families in Saint Astier, France since 1851. The characteristics of the raw materials as well as the manufacturing process assure the user of a product that is both high in quality and performance. In historical preservation and restoration, the consistency of the product, as well as the type of product, is extremely important to ensure compatibility with the existing structure and materials. In new build construction, Saint Astier® Natural Hydraulic Limes have developed a broad range of mortars and binders for the modern day requirements of today’s builders. Natural Hydraulic Lime competes with, and outperforms, comparable products in strength, elasticity, plasticity, and more. The ecological benefits of lime mortars such as CO2 re-absorption and condensation control are also crucial to a long-lasting and sound structure.
