This natural hydraulic lime is a dry-powdered lime. This lime is suitable for soft masonry or sheltered interior use. Hydraulic lime is set by hydrolysis, a chemical reaction caused by water. These limes set more rapidly and are slightly more durable than putty based limes, which makes them ideal for external use, particularly in damp or exposed conditions. NHL 2 is a feeble hydraulic lime, that means this lime is suitable to use for internal or external sheltered conditions.
