Decorative specialist Armourcoat have launched a new natural clay lime plaster range.
Clime plasters are designed to improve the quality of living and working interiors and to minimize the impact of wall finishing products on the environment.
Armourcoat are regarded as a pioneer in creating stunning and original environmentally friendly decorative products. Naturally sustainable, Clime clay lime plasters incorporate abundant raw earth materials such as unfired clay, marble, limestone and hydraulic lime. The plaster range is cement and VOC free, biodegradable and recyclable.
Clime plasters create healthy interiors, with beautiful finishes in tune with nature and engaging traditional decorative skills. Combining the benefits of natural products with modern and artisan techniques, Armourcoat Clime offers a whole new experience in decoration for the business and the home, but one that has its roots in history.
Armourcoat Clime clay lime plasters are available in two standard finishes: Clime Matte and Clime Stone. Clime Matte creates a finely textured, subtle finish which radiates the natural material used. Clime Stone includes crushed marble to create a heavier texture, suitable for large areas where a more dramatic finish is 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.
The manufacture of building materials contributes up to 11% of total global greenhouse gas emissions according to the latest data from the United Nations Environment Programme. Climate change is a rapidly growing concern and in order to alleviate the effects, particularly of carbon emissions, we need to consider energy efficiency and sustainability in both the construction and the operation of the built environment.
As a global company Armourcoat recognise the wider impact its products have on the planet. Armourcoat has an ongoing commitment to reducing its carbon footprint, from the sourcing of raw materials, to manufacturing, application and in-service life.
Founded with a determination to be the best and to responsibly provide natural, high performance products and to install them, Armourcoat is successfully working to provide a healthy, sustainable service to the benefit of all. Armourcoat environmental stewardship began over 35 years ago with the introduction of recycled marble within its main product lines. Armourcoat continues its work with exploring the use of raw materials with lower embodied carbon and energy.
