We produce specialized lime render products which are specified by many of the County Council Heritage departments. A good sand for lime render should be a washed sharp sand with angular grains of good particle distribution with a very low level of silt (-63um) to ensure good bonding qualities. Soft building sands should be avoided as their rounded grain shape can result in excessive shrinkage. Inish Pebble Company have been producing sand which meets the OPW and County Council specifications for the last 15 years, which has stood the test of time in this field.
The following grades of sand are available loose or in bags;
We also produce a grit for different texture finishes in lime rendering
