AHMC Hemp-lime Render
The AHMC Hemp lime Render was formulated to reflect the breathability of the AHMC Walling material. It requires the addition of 28 Kgs fine washed sand and 10L water.
It is also an excellent Render for other natural building materials, or on conventional masonry or brickwork.
The Render includes hemp fines to give the rendered wall a slightly textured finish. Where preferred, once the Render is applied it can be sponged to bring the small slivers of hemp into clear visibility. (Where the hemp is exposed in this way, the render should be coated with a clear breathable sealant to avoid any discolouration of the hemp. It is a woody product and will get weathered and change colour if left exposed and unsealed.)
AHMC Hemp lime Render can be coloured using alkali-resistant mineral oxides. Chemical oxides should not be used with lime products.
