SoRoTo 100L Case Study: Organic Plastering Company
The Organic Plastering Company are specialists in traditional lime plastering. This is an environmentally friendly material used for rendering.
Lime plastering is a popular choice due to its range of benefits that gives it advantage over sand and cement:
1. It is permeable and regulates humidity more effectively.
2. It will hold excess moisture from a wet or damp area before quickly releasing it as the humidity drops to reduce moisture.
3. It is flexible and will not crack as a result of seasonal changes.
4. Plaster and render should not be harder than the backing surface and lime putty is not.
The SoRoTo mixer can perform on the harshest and most demanding of work sites and this, alongside its ease of transport, are crucial reasons why Dan from Organic Plastering Company said the SoRoTo Forced Action Mixer worked for them. He said:
“This is the best mixer I have used. The mixer is very easy to man handle; one man is needed to move it in and out of the van.
“It has great mixing capacity with two good wheelbarrows full of render in each mix. The mixing action is lovely and chops up the lime putty with each. Other mixers on the market do not hold or mix as much material.”
