Buy clay

Buying clay at Lehm-Laden : This means choosing an ecological and healthy building material. A clay plaster has several convincing advantages: It is an extremely user-friendly building material, flexible and versatile in use, and available in various structural thicknesses and colours. It can be applied by hand or with plastering machines. In addition, clay plaster contributes to a positive indoor climate and is an ecological building material: it requires very little production energy.

Building and plastering walls with clay ensures the reliable regulation of indoor air humidity. For example, cooking or heating causes fluctuations in humidity, which the clay compensates for. Moisture in the indoor air either diffuses to the outside of the building, where it dries out, or is later released back into the indoor air. Especially in timber-framed buildings, this dehumidifying property contributes significantly to the protection of the wood. In addition, clay minerals are able to bind foreign substances and pollutants and thus "clean" the indoor air.

Clay plaster for your house - whether for the renovation of a half-timbered house or for a new building: clay is a jack-of-all-trades among building materials.

But clay plaster is not the only ecological building material. The building-healthy house consists of more than just a good plaster made of clay or lime: insulation against heat and cold, wall heating for comfort and colours for joy.

Lime as a building material - it's like clay, only a little more so. Clay is an earthy building material because it actually comes directly from the earth. Lime also comes from the earth, but it is far more complex - and also connected with exciting chemical processes such as setting and adhesion to different substrates. Do you have questions about building with lime? You can find the answers here, and you can also buy lime plaster at Lehm-Laden.

A brief introduction to building materials: the different clay plasters and their areas of application

Not all clay is the same. All areas of application require the variants optimised for them, as clay building materials differ in composition, grain size, aggregates and mixing ratios. Sand or plant fibres are added to clay plasters, insulating bricks or dry construction boards to ideally fulfil their respective purpose. Even plaster and render can be very different: coarse or fine, light or heavy, coloured or earthy.

Buy clay undercoat plaster

A coarse base plaster is used, for example, to level out unevenness, as an embedding mortar or for insulation systems. The much finer clay topcoat plasters and fine finish plasters are suitable as final plasters. However, they also differ from each other visually and haptically by their grain size or colour. Some of them form fine surfaces that are ready to be painted, while others can be used to creatively design fixed and finished surfaces: through-coloured or fine plasters refined with effect additives this becomes possible. So before you buy clay plaster, please know exactly what it will be used for. This will help you find the right product.
