Century Brand® Microcotta™

Match any color. Match any texture. Microcotta™ is a non-structural replacement for traditional building materials. It is a polymer resin composite that combines with inert, inorganic aggregates to form a lightweight, fire-resistant building material that is suited for economical cast replications of architectural ornamentation. It can be used to replicate terracotta, stone, cast stone, slate, brick, cast iron and other ornamental façade components with sharp detail and a wide color range. Learn More.

Lafarge™ Natural Hydraulic Lime

Lafarge™ Natural Hydraulic Lime (NHL) is made by burning a pure naturally occurring hydraulic limestone from their quarries in the French Alps, an area renowned for the quality of their stone. LaFarge NHL does not contain any Portland cement or additives of any kind. LaFarge NHL contains over 42% free lime, aiding in the workability and breathability of mortars and plasters made with it. Natural Hydraulic Limes are commonly used as a replacement mortar in structures originally built of hot and non-hydraulic lime mortars due to their resilience to harsh conditions and normal weathering. They also make ideal mortars and plasters for historic preservation and green building. Learn More.
