Hi
Been asked to do a rendering job on concrete blockwork ( garden retaining walls around a pool ) and was thinking of using a sand /cement /lime mix as there may be quite a bit of heat/cold expansion/contraction so want a bit of flexibility.

Would normally add hydrated lime to the mix to aid workability and give a little flexibility.

Has anyone worked in France and knows what hydrated lime is called over there and maybe some national suppliers names where it would be stocked.

Thanks
 
When ever we work in France we take our own materials with us.
We also make up some food with us as we know what a s**t hole of a place it is. It nigh impossible to get a Frenchman to do any work.
