Malta Bedding Mortar

Malta Bedding Mortar


Malta Bedding Mortar is a natural and highly breathable masonry mortar composed solely of thick hemp shiv, natural dolomitic binder and symbiotic microorganisms. The total absence of hydraulic binders and mineral aggregates as well as the high cellulose component maximise the breathability of the masonry and make ‘Malta Bedding Mortar’ the ideal solution for laying Hemplime Block masonry. Highly energy-efficient, it eliminates the thermal bridges within the masonry, guarantees maximum healthiness and this results in a monolithic masonry from hemp and lime. 


Ready-to-use product to be applied manually. Spread the mortar in the center of the Hemplime Block for at least 2/3 of the surface with a thickness of about 1 cm, necessary to regularise the surface for the next course of masonry. Before proceeding with the laying of the bedding mortar, the Hemplime Block must be wet by nebulising with clean water. Once the wall is finished, the mortar joints between the bricks can be filled and tooled. Tooling the joints allows to completely eliminate the thermal bridges generated by the bedding mortar and offers a perfect uniformity of material on which the plaster will be applied. It is possible to proceed with the realisation of the cladding for a height up to about 3m without any problem. For higher heights and low thicknesses of the Hemplime Block, it is advisable to proceed with the laying of about 1.5-2m in height, wait for the bedding mortar to “set” and then continue.
