Until recently, finding a safe alternative to replace lime in stucco, plaster, grout, and mortar was a difficult proposition. Type S lime has been a long time staple for those requiring their mix to remain fluffy and sticky. Afterall, workability is a must. But finally, there’s a safe alternative that won’t burn skin, irritate eyes, or get you all choked up.
SYNLIME™, from Admix International, is a safe 100% complete lime replacement. A comparison to Type S Lime reveals some amazing differences:
SYNLIME™ is specifically formulated to produce high plasticity and excellent water retention. The end result is a more workable mix with higher PSI levels that is clean, safe, and worker friendly. Its increased bonding strength to foam and wire is also superior to lime. Is there a safe alternative to lime in mortar? The answer is a resounding yes… SYNLIME™.
