For homeowners in Montreal, we provide a rental tool kit that includes all the necessary equipment for a American Clay Installation.
We provide the full range of Lime Plaster for indoor and outdoor applications. St Astier Natural Hydraulic Limes (NHL) and derivative products have been produced by the same families since 1851. The mineralogical characteristics of the raw materials, the manufacturing process and the quality controls are such that homeowners and contractors are assured of the constant performance of the products. For Green Building, St.Astier Limes have developed a range of binders and ready mixed mortars combining all the characteristics required by today’s builder in terms of speed of setting, strength, elasticity, plasticity, low capillarity and shrinkage, with the breathability and aesthetic quality of lime mortars. The result is that these lime mortars are becoming the obvious alternative to cement mortars also in the new build and eco build sectors.
