Additional compound based on ground "old" bricks and tiles, to be added to mixtures of hydraulic lime and aggregates, for producing mortars, plasters and subbase screeds, similar to the compounds of tradition "cocciopesto" (lime mortar with crushed pottery), in ecological building interventions and in the restoration of vintage buildings and monuments.

The reactive capacity, which is beneficial, of the LATERSANA cocciopesto (lime mortar with crushed pottery) vis-à-vis the components of anhydrous mixtures based on natural hydraulic lime, botticino, and cocciopesto (lime mortar with crushed pottery), is facilitated by the fact that the composition of LATERSANA mainly consists of antique brick and tile granulates, produced with cooking oven temperatures that did not exceed 1000°C. Thus, the granulate quality was not affected by transforming into a clinkerised, inert product.
The addition of LATERSANA in mixtures of lime and aggregates, promotes the improvement of the watertightness of the system, increases the resistance to compression, improves the workability of the final compound.
Variable according to the different design requirements (approximately between 5 and 20% of LATERSANA on the weight of the anhydrous components of the mixture: hydraulic lime + aggregates + earth colours).
Production of mortars, screeds and plaster based on natural hydraulic lime, carbonated and cocciopesto aggregates.
Add LATERSANA with the correct mixture of binders and aggregates, in the quantity required for the specific use (between 5% and 20% by weight of the weight of the remaining anhydrous components: hydraulic lime, aggregates, earth colours). Add the required water, mixing thoroughly, until a homogeneous, lump-free mixture is obtained.
- To be added to other components
- Cement-based or lime-based mortars
- Floor screed
To protect fresh surfaces, the mortars and plasters, from direct exposure to sunlight, from rain and wind. Cure the prolonged moist hardening.
