Lime Mortar

What is Lime Mortar?

Lime mortar is an important product in the construction industry. It is a mixture of limestone, clay, and water that is used to build any size structures, from houses to big apartment buildings. It is a product of the chemical reaction between calcium hydroxide (lime) and silica (sand). When the two react together, they form a hard substance called alite, which is commonly referred to as cement. The sand and lime are mixed together in the correct proportions to create the mortar.

It has been used for centuries and is still considered one of the most effective building materials today.

The mortar was first used by the Egyptians more than 4,000 years ago. They used it to construct their pyramids and temples.
