FIELD OF APPLICATION: FENIX NHL5 is a certified natural hydraulic lime for the restoration
of important buildings and for the renovation of historical and heritage buildings protected and regulated
by Environmental and Architectural Heritage Agencies.
FENIX NHL 5 is ideal for mixing with local aggregates that are suitable for the specific work to be carried
out; thus, recreating traditional and local aesthetic and chromatic effects.
ADVANTAGES: - compatible with existing masonries
- NHL 5 certified according to UNI EN 459-1
- very low content of water-soluble salts
- sulfate resistant
- typical hazelnut color
- certified origin and production
HOW TO APPLY IT: FENIX NHL5 allows creating mortars and plasters that during the curing stage have the lowest content of water-soluble salts, which are the cause of salt efflorescence. NHL FENIX 5 must be mixed with clean and selected aggregates, free from organic substances, at the rate of 350÷450 Kg/m3 and clean water depending on the desired consistency of the mix.
The use of aggregates with an excess or defect of fine parts will involve the preparation of non-workable mixes ("lean" or "fat") that are affected by non adequate resistance and durability. The mix can be prepared manually or using a concrete mixer.
APPARENT DENSITY: approx. 1100 kg/m3
MECHANICAL STRENGTH AFTER 28 DAYS: > 5 N/mm2
PACKAGE: 25 Kg sack or loose
