New pre mixed Ironstone mortars introduced
We have introduced pre-mixed Ironstone Mortars to cater for the demand for a pre mixed version of our bestselling limes and sand
Ironstone sharp, fine sand blended with a brown Nosterfield, 2.5 mm down, washed river sand has proved very useful as a pointing and construction mix when mixed 3 parts with one part Quick Lime, one part Ionic Old White Moderately Hydraulic Lime or one part Ionic NHL5 lime.
Womersley’s have now started selling all three versions of this mix, made with different strength limes as pre mixed products. The hot lime mix produced with the quick lime is sold as a wet mortar, with or without Pozzolans, and the other two as dried bagged products that you just add water to.
The moderately hydraulic lime version has been used in the conversion and restoration of The Aisled Barn at Scout Hall Farm, Halifax, as shown on the attached photo
