LIMESTRONG™

LimeStrong - An Old-World Lime Pozzolan Plaster

Limestrong™ plaster was developed in partnership with Stan Petersen, the world-renowned natural plaster expert. Under Stan's guidance, Hess Pumice formulated and field-tested a natural plaster product that puts the strength, durability and beauty of old-world plaster masters in the capable hands of today's plasterers.

Limestrong™ is an old-world formulation that uses no Portland cement, but rather gains its beauty, breathability, and finish workability from the base combination of slaked (hydrated) lime and pumice pozzolan, resulting in an Artificial Hydraulic Lime (AHL) product. The plaster is ready to mix out of the bag—no sand is necessary, as LimeStrong uses lightweight pumice for the aggregate.

DIMENSION GRIT™

Dimension Grit: In-Suspension Texturizer

In-suspension grip agent/texturizer for primers that prepare gypsum wall board surfaces to take thin interior plasters (like the Venetian types). Also grades for paints and floor coatings where a roughened, traction texture is desired.

Because of the light, frothy nature of pumice and its low specific gravity, Dimension Grit™ tends to stay in suspension (depending of viscosity of liquid). Heavier grits, like sand, will settle, requiring constant stirring or agitation or a last-minute sprinkle-in application.

ROUGH BITE [#3]
MONSTER BITE [#5]
