For 35 years, Armourcoat Ltd have been developing natural mineral plaster finishes that incorporate large percentages of recycled material.
In this time a wealth of experience in formulating plasters for both interior and exterior environments has been gained, leading to Armourcoat organically becoming the most respected brand for sustainable decorative plasters worldwide.
Armourcoat’s newest addition to their extensive product range is ‘Clime’, a natural Clay lime plaster. There has been a lot of interest focused on clay plasters as a sustainable option for wall finishes, however after extensive research and evaluation Armourcoat concluded that despite the wonderful qualities of clay, clay only plasters are unfortunately extremely fragile and soften almost immediately when exposed to water.
By developing a natural binder made from roughly equal amounts of clay and hydraulic lime, Armourcoat believes Clime achieves the optimum balance.
Clime is naturally sustainable, low in embodied carbon and retains the raw aesthetic of clay only plasters. It is resilient enough to be used as a wall finish with true longevity.
Available in two standard finishes: Clime Matte and Clime Stone, the natural clay lime plaster is 100% cement and VOC free, biodegradable and has achieved IAC Gold status and EPD classification. Due to the materials versatility, it can feature in both homes and commercial buildings, withstanding the demands of busy interiors.
Clime Matte creates a finely textured, subtle finish which radiates the natural material used. Clime Stone includes recycled crushed marble to create a heavier texture, suitable for large areas where dramatic finishes are desired.
Both finishes are available in 15 colours and are suitable for internal areas. Custom colours and finishing techniques are also possible including banding, layering and pearlescent washes.
Clime plasters create healthy interiors, with beautiful finishes in tune with nature and engaging traditional decorative skills.
