Benefits of mortars

Close to the original materials used, extending the durability and beauty of the buildings:

Mortar used in the context of cultural heritage building renovation is a specific solution that takes into account specific characteristics of ancient supports, or materials used. Based on natural ingredients (lime, sand, etc.) these mortars, thanks to their properties of non-aggressiveness and breathability as well as the compatibility of their strength with historical materials, are key solutions for the renovation and durability of prestigious sites. They are safe to use for buildings and therefore approved by cultural heritage authorities. Their consistency and palette of colour options mean that it is possible to produce the same effect as the original material.

The premixed  and semi-premixed mortars used in the context of Cultural Heritage building renovation are specific solutions taking into account the particular qualities of the ancient support or materials used.  Based on natural ingredients (lime and sand), these mortars, thanks to their properties of non-aggressiveness, breathability, and the compatible strength with the historical materials are key solutions for the renovation and durability of prestigious sites.  They are safe to use for the buildings and are therefore authorized by Cultural Heritage authorities. Their consistency and the palette of color possibilities enable to reach the same effect as the original material.

Controlled and stable quality to ensure a long-lasting and aesthetically pleasing renovation:

The products are made at local production sites (sometimes imported from Weber factories  in neighbouring countries), all according to international standards (ISO 9001, 14001 / CE). They are submitted to strict quality control during production, enabling high-quality results and stable products.  It is a real benefit compared with the ancient practice of working where, all the elements were mixed on the worksite with high risk of varying quality results. They offer safety to the building owners with long-lasting results.

Workability and high performance to offer more affordable and easier solutions:

Thanks to its pre-mixed format with less on-site preparation and for some solutions the ability to be applied with machine assistance, the application time is shorter for the contractor. The overall costs are therefore reduced if you compare it with a very traditional on-site mixing solution, with the above‑mentioned security of having a fully controlled product. The workability properties of the solutions are also one of the key elements the R&D teams are pursuing. Availability, the possibility of combining solutions and increased working efficiency enable better competitiveness for the contractors.
