Womersleys Insulating Lime Render Plaster and Moisture Buffering

4th October 2018

The Insulating Render is designed to improve the thermal performance of solid walled masonry, whilst maintaining the high vapour permeability and low strength of an NHL2 render. Insulating Render offers a viable solution for Part L1B legislation in that it meets the requirements for improving the thermal performance of a wall, whilst maintaining a permeable fabric which absorbs and readily allows for the evaporation of moisture and will not prejudice the character of the host building or increase the risk of long term deterioration of the building fabric or fittings. A 50mm application, applied as two coats, will reduce heat loss in a solid wall by 60%.
