The Lime Cycle
simply illustrates our motive in producing bioLime® products.
Lifecycle analysis and a manufacturer's energy usage play a critical role in sustainable building products.
bioLime® has been a true GreenBuild material for more than four generations—long before green building initiatives were ever conceived. For more than 80 years, our products have been manufactured with a meticulous process of firing, slaking and aging lime, which are intended to complete a natural cycle of life called the lime cycle.
Of many issues at hand with non-sustainable structures, Indoor Air Quality is a critical concern. Artificial, chemical-based structural paints and plasters have been cited as a major factor in releasing poisonous air pollutants and airborne bacteria.
When a structure is properly designed and finished with bioLime® products you eliminate VOCs, mildew, mold, and bacterium while creating huge advantages to the structural elements of the building.
Using bioLime® places you directly in line with truly sustainable building practices.
You can rely on bioLime® products for their pristine quality, ease of workability, consistency, durability, and longevity, and ultimately, structural sustainability. Our research and development department—drawing on decades of experience—is continually developing new GreenBuild plasters and paints that create outstanding finishes—right here in the U.S.A.
Making the switch to bioLime® from less eco-friendly plasters and paints can make a significant difference in achieving true GreenBuild goals, and in securing your success as a builder.
We strive to help builders create sustainable buildings with natural products of the earth. Lime is the world's first true GreenBuild material, successfully used in sustainable construction processes for thousands of years. Using pure, natural lime in your structural finishing is wiser and more beneficial than falling back on modern-day alternatives like Portland cement or other chemical-based finishing products.
We enjoy affiliations and accreditations with a number of public, private and government GreenBuild agencies and associations.
