Overview:

Preserve the delicate beauty and structural integrity of your most fragile historic masonry with our PHL 2.0 Lime-Based Repointing Mortar. Formulated with no Portland cement, this premium concentrate, available in convenient quart and gallon sizes, is meticulously formulated to replicate the performance, breathability, and historic characteristics of NHL 2.0 feebly hydraulic lime mortars. By blending this concentrate with locally sourced sand, you can effortlessly create a historically accurate and exceptionally gentle mortar, ensuring a seamless and long-lasting repair for your most cherished and delicate structures.

Key Features:

  • Authentic PHL 2.0 Formulation: Our PHL 2.0 mortar is a pozzolanic lime mortar, a historically accurate blend of high-calcium lime and reactive clays (pozzolan). It is free of Portland cement, making it ideal for repairs on historic masonry originally built with soft lime mortar.
  • Versatile Quart & Gallon Concentrates: Choose the size that suits your project needs, with each container yielding approximately 4 times its volume in ready-to-use mortar when combined with local sand.
  • Exceptional Breathability for Delicate Masonry: The high lime content and feebly hydraulic nature of this mortar make it exceptionally breathable, allowing moisture to escape easily and preventing damage to delicate masonry.
  • Five Classic Colors: Select from white, gray, light buff, dark buff, or dark red to seamlessly match the original mortar color of your historic structure.
  • Easy Mixing and Application: Simply combine the concentrate with sand and water according to the provided instructions for a smooth, workable mortar that is easy to apply.

Ideal Applications:

  • Repointing historic brick and stone masonry built with soft lime mortar, particularly in sheltered locations
  • Repairing cracks, gaps, and deteriorated mortar joints in very soft or fragile masonry
  • Matching historic mortar colors and textures in delicate restoration projects
  • Restoring the structural integrity and aesthetic appeal of heritage buildings with sensitive masonry

Why Choose PHL 2.0 Lime Mortar?

Unlike modern cement-based mortars, which can be too rigid and trap moisture, our PHL 2.0 lime mortar is exceptionally gentle and breathable, making it ideal for use on soft and fragile masonry that requires a delicate touch. By using a historically accurate mortar with the appropriate hydraulic properties, you ensure the longevity and beauty of your most sensitive restoration work.

Important Note: PHL 2.0 is specifically designed for soft or fragile masonry in sheltered locations. For masonry exposed to direct weather or requiring greater strength, consider our PHL 3.5 or 5.0 mortars.

Mixing Instructions:

  1. Combine one part PHL 2.0 concentrate with 2.5 to 3 parts clean, sharp sand.
  1. Gradually add water until the desired consistency is achieved.
  1. Mix thoroughly until the mortar is smooth and homogenous.

Safety Precautions:

  • Always wear appropriate safety gear, including gloves and eye protection, when handling mortar.
  • Follow the manufacturer's instructions and safety guidelines for proper mixing and application.
