Nature of the product
Environmentally friendly products are highly resistant to abrasion and acid corrosion due to their natural ingredients.
What is obtained is new and placed in a pit in the seasoning process. The lime used in the preparation of the mortar takes at least 3 months, or it takes at least 24 months to use the binder for the topcoat. During the seasoning process, two different complementary reactions occur, one being a chemical reaction and the other being a physical reaction. Both are essential for achieving high quality.
From a chemical point of view, the hydration of the two oxides occurs at different rates on lime and magnesium. The time required for magnesium oxide to become a hydroxide is much longer than that of calcium oxide. The 16% content of magnesium in the minerals is very important, which gives the final applied lacquer immediate wear resistance and good weatherability. This is why in modern lime plants, magnesium is often seen as a contaminant or impurity to be avoided. Most modern limes must be ready for rapid use, sold as powdered slaked lime and used to produce lime plaster, paint and plaster. In fact, anhydrous calcium or magnesium oxide, which is undesirable in decorative finishes, can cause uncontrolled alkalis. Erosion of pigments or other ingredients in the paint, which requires complete redoing.
Physical changes are becoming more and more important during the long seasoning process. In the initial stage, after the calcium and magnesium hydroxide solutions have very low viscosities, the structure of the lime becomes more creamy, and the "lime" lime is initially named. In the body state, "cooked" means fat, and "lime" means fat and greasy substance. After 3 months, the slaked lime is ripened into cream and softened. After 24 months of continuous hydration, the particles deformed from macroscopic to microcrystalline, forming an ordered structure through weak electrical orientation.
The range of DDM natural lime based finishes includes many different coatings. Choosing a lime finish not only means choosing a color, it also means that you can modify the specific effects of the structural design, the texture and the application method, and this choice will last.
