Called in to tradlime in Cheltenham earlier today and was given a sack of Cornerstone insulating render to try....
Material is very light apparently using a preportion of glass and nhl 2

Can apply up to 25mm

You can use a lime finish as top coat..

Just wonder if anyone else used it yet?

Had a job to try this cornerstone stuff....insulating render


Been a while since i started post so an update


Hacked off old plaster to 1m from floor ....was stupidly thick so will need 3 coats of render

Really light /perlite ,lime mix

Applied in 2 coats on same day 2x 15mm

Need to apply another render coat on Mon or Tues...to bring it out..

It's quite expensive at 15.50 Inc vat(bag is only 9kg) but on the other hand so is limelite at 25.00

Used l*m*-g***n solo as my top coat in the end, it's hard work over solid backgrounds but if worked right you can get a really good finish, highly recommended.

did you trowel finish or sponge finish? using thus product at the moment and they want a trowelled finished but it just bubbles up when you trowel it, any tips? thanks

Personally I never finish lime with a steel trowel
You should really be leaving a light texture to leave it breathable .....so sponge would be recommended
You need to make it clear to customer what material can do and not the other way around

Not a great fan of that stuff to be fair I think all the pre bagged nhl stuff is not that great but when I have to use it for insulated spec I always use ultra

All the pre bagged really needs to be a sponge finish so try my most to never use it internally
