The use of lime plaster as a protection of building units against moisture is very common in the monument preservation, but controversially discussed. Historical buildings often demonstrate the problems of the two building materials, in particular the insufficient adherence between clay and lime in the course of time. Previous results of research brought out contradictory statements. The project especially focuses on the compressed, hydrophobic polished lime plaster Tadelakt, which can act as a… 

Properties of Lime Plaster with Hydrophobic Admixture

The effect of metakaolin and hydrophobic agent admixture on properties of newly designed lime plasters is analysed in the paper. The overall majority of physical - chemical building deterioration is

Evaluation of Compressed Lime Plaster tadelakt as a Protective Covering for Earth Structures

If we observe popular constructive traditions, we could obtain solutions for our current construction necessities that require less use of the limited resources available. An example of these

Non-Destructive Prospection of Ancient Steam Bathes Covered with Tadelakt — First Preliminary Comparison of Hammam Kasbah des Caids of Tamnougalt and Hammam Kasbah of Taourirt, Morocco

Nowadays the use of authentically, natural building materials for the preservation of monuments ends, where moisture and steam arises: in climatically challenging rooms like baths, kitchens, saunas,
