Over the ages, builders have made use of the binding properties of lime to construct different types of structures: Roman temples, castles, cathedrals and bridges, etc. Today, lime-based mortars still form part of masonry and plaster mixes for building facades. Lime is also an ingredient in modern building materials such as aerated concrete and sand-lime bricks. These materials have excellent thermal, fire as well as acoustic insulating properties and are easy to work with, making them extremely popular.
In addition to our lime products, we are also a major supplier of high-purity limestone and ball clay to the building industry for use in the production of window glass, asphalt roofing shingles, cement and concrete, fiber cement board and tile and sanitary ware.
