Tadelakt is a polished plaster based on the original Moroccan plaster meaning ‘to rub’ or ‘knead’ in Arabic. It is used increasingly as a water repellent alternative to tiling in wet rooms, showers and bathrooms or as a stunning feature wall.
Tadelakt has a beautiful, smooth appearance and is exceptionally tactile. Its versatility means that there are very few limitations in terms of the surfaces and shapes it can be applied to.
Using natural hydraulic lime, selected sands and marble powder as the main ingredients, the very specific application and treatment of Tadelakt results in a strong water repellent surface and unique finish. Kreidezeit Tadelakt is supplied as a dry powder that is naturally white, or can be coloured to 54 beautiful colours.
Venetian Plaster has been used since the middle ages to create stunning finishes. There are many differing names in use today for this type of finish – these kinds of plaster are often called polished plaster or marbled plaster because of the typical finishes that can be achieved.
Venetian plaster is designed to be plastered in very thin coats with special trowels or spatulas. The overall thickness will usually be between 0.5 and 1 mm. The number of coats depends on the desired effect.
They work best over porous surfaces which provide some suction to aid adhesion. If suction is excessive, we supply a natural casein primer which can be applied before a backing coat of Kreidezeit Lime Wall Finish.
We supply a wide range of natural soaps, oils and waxes to aid burnishing and increase water and dirt repellency.
We also supply special metallic and pearlescent pigments for special effects.
Marmorino is an easy-to-use lime plaster for application on smooth interior surfaces. Use to create fascinating surfaces with the silk-shine lustre and deep transparency of polished stone or travertino textured stone effects.
Apply Marmorino in 2 layers, each layer approximately 1 mm thick. Due to this thicker application and the size of marble grains, the appearance is different from Venetian-style polished plasters.
A polishing plaster covering the complete surface of subtle uniform elegance.
Apply Marmorino with a smoothing trowel and burnish for the effect of polished natural stone. Alternatively, finish using various tools and sponges leaving a ‘travertino’ worn/textured effect.
