Hydraulic Lime Mortar for the House of the Future

Lime mortar was used extensively between the 15th and 18th centuries for bonding and surface dressing of masonry. Its supremacy as a building material continued until the late 19th century, when it was superseded by the arrival of Portland cement - and the availability of faster setting cement mortars and renders.
