Lime-based plaster creates a durable wall finish that's a breath of fresh air
What makes TransMineral USA’s lime-based plaster, mortar, and paint green? Most notably, their products contain no VOCs and no polymers, so there’s no off-gassing. The plaster Fine Homebuilding editor Chris Ermides reports on comes premixed (just add color) and applies in two coats. The result is a durable, smooth wall finish sealed with an olive-based sealant. The cost is $1 per sq. ft. for materials or $8 per sq. ft. for materials and application by a contractor—well worth it if you’re one of the millions of Americans with chemical sensitivities.
