If you are looking into rendering your property, we recommend looking into our services with Eco-cork render. Eco cork is a new product used within the plastering and rendering industry and is formulated from lime binder. This means that it is completely free from all cement, making it super lightweight. Eco-cork can be used in both the interior and exterior of a property, making it super durable and easy to work with.

But what is Eco-cork plastering?

Made by SecilTek, Eco-cork is a lightweight insulating render. It uses a blend of cork and natural hydraulic lime (NHL), which makes it such a sustainable and ecological building product. Here at JC plastering and lime, we argue that hard cement rendering should be removed and replaced wit this insulating lime render made with cork.

Eco-cork render has been increasingly more popular, due to the environmental benefits it can have. Compared to traditional lime mortars or cement render, it can provide a much more elegant finish, which is said to be significantly lighter on the property. Therefore, adding a substantial value onto any property.

Other benefits to using eco-cork in rendering and plastering jobs can include –

  • It is friendly on the environment as it does not contain cement.
  • Cost effective compared to lime mortars.
  • Easier to apply than traditional lime/hemp mortars. It can also coat up to 40mm of surface area in a day.
  • Much faster in terms of drying. Topcoat is ready to apply in only a matter of days.
  • 50% lighter than traditional lime mortars.
  • Reduced carbon dioxide.
  • Resistant to any salts.
  • Can be used both in the interior and exterior of a property.
  • High durability and can last for a long period of time.
  • Adds value to any property.

All of these benefits can be shown to be highly more significant than any other type of rendering material. As it is mixed with mainly cork aggregate, eco-cork is well known and popular due to the great thermal values it can have on a property. In addition to this, eco-cork comes from a renewable source, making it substantial in being economically friendly. It can provide a lightweight, vapour permeable and insulating render or plaster finish to any surface. Therefore, making it the best in the business.
