USAGE
Natural Hydraulic Lime is a very versatile material and has many features and benefits. Its
whiteness allows the best reproduction of sand colour. All applications and finishes are possible.
Generally used for restoration and conservation work, working temperatures not below 5C or above
30C. In case of high temperatures or strong winds humidify surfaces regularly. Protect from frost
for a minimum of 72 hours.

HEALTH AND SAFETY
Singleton Birch NHL particles, if inhaled, can irritate the upper respiratory track. Avoid contact with
eyes. Irritation and even injury can occur. When mixed with water, the paste obtained is highly
alkaline. It can dry the skin and mucous membranes in the event of prolonged contact. If present,
chromates can be dissolved by the water and this could cause allergic skin reactions in some
hypersensitive individuals when exposed by lengthy and repeated contact. The basic components of
NHL are common natural materials.
