LIMESTRONG BUILD LINE
THE LIMESTRONG BUILD™ Pozzolanic Hydraulic Lime (PHL) product line features two primary lime plaster products: Limestrong Build Binder, used to build the scratch and leveling base plaster coats. Binder is a pozzolan + lime binder product only—the plaster sand/aggregate is sourced locally. Limestrong Build Finishes are all-in-one plasters (pozzolan + lime + pumice aggregate) applied as the final coat in a typical three-coat plaster system (use either course or fine finish types) or applied over properly prepared and primed drywall (interior finish type). The Limestrong Color System is designed to be used seamlessly with our Limestrong Build Finish products. Additional products include a limewash mineral paint, a specialized-use bonding fortifier, an interior olive-oil soap protectant, and a hempbinder (for making hempcrete).
Job-sized quantities of Limestrong Build plasters are shipped on pallets via a freight LTL carrier. Please carefully read the Freight and Delivery information document to understand and prepare for the process.
LIMESTRONG BUILD BINDER is sold as a PHL lime binder product only, providing a significant cost savings in shipping for palletized, job-sized quantities. Plaster sand must be sourced locally and mixed with binder to make lime plaster mud to render the (scratch and leveling) base coats.

LIMESTRONG LIMEWASH is an exterior grade mineral infusion paint. Limewash creates a color-imbued matte finish with a soft, porous feel. Limewash is not a film-forming coating, and does not contain synthetic binders. Rather, it is absorbed into the plaster and becomes part of the render, forming an integral bond that will not flake or peel. Limewash is best suited for light-to-medium colored finishes. Combine with clean water and an (optional) color pigment. Apply minimum of two coats.

LIMESTRONG FORTIFIER is a polymer-based lime plaster additive that provides increased bonding over hard-to-bond substrates hard brick, manufactured stone and board forms, building block, cementitious backer board, poured concrete.
PERFORMANCE ADVANTAGES: Limestrong Fortifier makes it easier to bond a lime plaster scratch coat on hard, non-pourous and non-absorbent (closed), or smooth surfaces.
LSB FORTIFIER: $15 (1 lb.)
PRIMER GRIT is a fine-grained pumice aggregate that is mixed into quality latex based or PVA primers. When applying LSB Interior Finish plaster over new drywall, it is necessary to prepare the surface with a gritted primer. The grit provides mechanical key to adhere plaster to the drywall and allows the lime plaster to spread evenly over the primed surface without sliding.
LSB PRIMER GRIT: $25 (3 lbs.)
LIMESTRONG SOAP FINISH is made from a blend of premium olive and coconut oils, our soap concentrate is formulated to seal and protect interior Limestrong finishes, imparting a silky feel.
LSB SOAP FINISH: $30 (1 qt.)
