Lithomex is a premix material based on Natural Hydraulic Lime specially formulated for the repair of stone. The first step to take when repairing stone is to identify and understand the reasons for decay and damage. Typically, reasons point to moisture problems or poor past repairs. Cement-based repairs can be extremely damaging to soft stone, trapping moisture and salts in the stone. Lithomex, which is a lime-based material, is flexible, porous, and aids in breathability. Repairing or patching the stone can be very effective and affordable. When repairing stone, the patching material must also match the color and texture of the existing stone. Lithomex, when applied by a skilled craftsmen, will often lend itself to a perfect match.
