Telling Natural Hydraulic Lime.
Telling manufacture a range of natural lime mortar products for various applications including mortar, plaster, render, screeds and concretes, together with stabilisation and consolidation grouts, mesh reinforcement and lime paints and finishes. The natural hydraulic lime products are manufactured using a modern day manufacturing process which replicates the strength, porosity, adhesion and flexibility of historic mortars.
The products are guaranteed against failure for 10 years and are warranted against defect under a professional indemnity insurance.

Unilit Bonding Layers.
A range of preparation products designed to stabilise the existing surface and provide the optimum bond for following layers of Unilit mortars. For application of hydraulic lime renders and plasters over concrete, or where background surfaces are excessively salt laden, damp or friable, a Unilit 10 or Unilit 15 bonding layer must be applied to ensure optimum bond to the substrate and to provide a key for subsequent layers.

Unilit Natural Hydraulic Lime Finishing Mortars.
Specify these finishing mortars as the final layer in the clauses for the background layers. Click on the name below to jump to the product and specification details.
Unilit 40 – Fine weatherproof finishing mortar for external render. Smooth or fine textured finish.
Unilit 45 – Fine finishing mortar for internal plaster. Smooth or fine textured finish.
Unilit 400 – Fine through coloured finishing mortar for internal and external render. Smooth or fine textured finish.
Unilit 300 – Medium through coloured finishing mortars for internal and external render.
Unilit 200 – Coarse through coloured finishing mortars for internal and external render.
Unilit 30 – Coarse weatherproof finishing mortar for external render.
Unilit 35M – Medium finishing mortar.
Unilit 35 – Coarse finishing mortar.

For mortar repairs to stone Unilit can be applied in layers consisting of a bonding layer to optimise the bond to the existing masonry, undercoat layers to build up the required thickness and profile and a finishing coat to match the existing masonry colour and texture.
The range of Unilit Natural Hydraulic Lime mortars includes traditional lime sand mixes – Unilit 35, Unilit 35M, Telling Fen X Preblend and Unilit Fen X and Sand, which can then be supplemented by the use of Unilit 10 and Unilit 15 bonding layers for unstable substrates, Telling Brick Mesh for reinforcement of the junction of dissimilar backgrounds large voids and over timber framed areas, Unilit 30 waterproofing and stabilising mortar for damp and salt laden areas, Unilit 20 lightweight insulating mortar for thermal improvement and where the thickness of plaster or the nature of the substrate requires a lightweight plaster, and the extensive range of finishes.
We recommend where possible a Unilit premixed finish be applied to ensure the suitability of the mix to achieve the required finish. Finishes can be produced using Unilit Fen X and sand mixes however the grading of the sand is critical on the success of the finishing mortar, therefore where smooth or fine textured finishes are required the premixed range should be selected. Internal Unilit 45 and weatherproof external Unilit 40/ 15P1 finishes are available in a range of textures, for smooth and fine textured through to coarse and roughcast finishes. A fully compatible paint system should be used to maintain the high degree of vapour permeability – Corical Lime Paint. Alternatively, Unilit 200 (coarse), 300 (medium) and 400 (fine) through coloured finishes are available in a range of colours.

Unilit 10 Bonding Layer.
A bonding layer based on natural hydraulic lime and silica sand designed to function within the Unilit system as a bonding bridge between the weak substrate and the mortar – Unilit 20, 25, 30 or 35.
Unilit 10 is designed for backgrounds unsuitable to guarantee an optimum bonding of the Unilit mortar, such as surfaces with a closed structure (concrete slabs or very old masonry) and substrates completely saturated with water. Applied in open structure the product will not impair the permeability of the wall.
Colour: Beige.
Packaging: 30 kg bags, in powder form.
Density: 1600 kg/m3.
Tensile strength: 4 N/mm2 after 60 days; 6 N/mm2 after 90 days.

Maximum granular size: 4 mm.
Consult Telling technical service department for advice on the suitability of the substrate.
Consult with Unilit technical literature for details. Hydraulic lime mortars are specialist products and it is recommended that Telling Lime Products are consulted early in the design process.

Application: Unilit 10 should be applied by tyrolean gun or similar on dry or damp substrates. The layer must not exceed 1mm and coverage should not be greater than 70% of the surface area. Unilit 10 requires the addition of 5.2 to 7.5 litres of water per 30kg bag, mechanically mixed for 3 to 5 minutes.

Substrates of reinforced concrete must be treated with a layer of Unilit 15 before applying finishing mortars Unilit 200, 300, or 400. Unilit 15 can also be used as a preparatory treatment for completely saturated backgrounds and will not impair the permeability of the wall.
Unilit 15/P0 is designed as a fine legalizing filler when old lime renders are removed and prepares the substrate for further treatment.
Unilit 15/P1 is designed as a bonding and/or finishing layer it is applied in a 2-4 mm layer by trowel. Unilit 15 P1 can also be used as lime wash or slurry/primer coat for lime paint and is applied in a slurry layer using a brush.

Unilit 400.
A smooth or fine textured through coloured traditional, dry, premixed mineral finishing mortar based on hydraulic, naturally pure and selected lime and available in 12 standard colours and colours achievable using natural earth ochre pigments. Unilit through coloured renders are produced using natural earth ochre pigments, which are inert, UV resistant and do not leach out or fade.

Unilit 30. Finish – Coarse weatherproof finishing layer. (see Unilit 30 clause for undercoat application)
A dry, premixed mineral stabilising mortar based on hydraulic, naturally pure and selected lime. Designed particularly for situations where rising damp or capillary action is prevalent, the mortar is characterised by a high plasticity, slow but strong bonding and a low salt content. Unilit 30 is impermeable to water but very vapour permeable and can be used as an undercoat or as a coarse finishing coat as part of a Unilit mortar system. The mortar can be applied to damp walls of buildings and cellars.
Where high levels of damp and salts are prevalent, e.g. basement walls the minimum total undercoat layer thickness of Unilit 30 must be 20 mm, for the minimum waterproofing performance the minimum total undercoat layer thickness must be 12 to 15mm.
Where applied as a finishing coat Unilit 30 is applied by steel trowel a minimum 4 – 6mm thickness and can be sponged or wood floated to the desired coarse, open textured, water repellent finish.
A colour finish can then be applied with a lime paint – specify in section M60 – Lime wash and lime paint finishes are available from Telling Lime Products and can be applied within 2 or 3 days after the application of Unilit 30.
