Clay Textured, Biodegradable Wall Plasters Blending Sustainability with Durability | Clime

Armourcoat, a surfacing brand, has introduced Clime, a range of textured and biodegradable wall plaster surfaces that seamlessly blend the natural appearance of clay with heightened durability. The brand created Clime to provide a sustainable choice for interior wall coverings. Crafted to be an elegant natural plaster surface with low embodied carbon and enduring durability, Clime combines unfired clay and limestone with hydraulic lime, making it suitable for high-traffic domestic and commercial interiors. Know more about it on SURAFCES REPORTER (SR).

The material is biodegradable, recyclable, cement-free and VOC-free, earning it Eurofins Indoor Air Comfort (IAC) Gold status. While clay plasters have gained interest for sustainable wall finishes, Armourcoat found them to be fragile and prone to softening when exposed to water. By developing a natural binder using equal amounts of clay and hydraulic lime, Armourcoat achieved a balance that retains the raw aesthetic of clay-only plasters while enhancing resilience for long-lasting wall finishes. Clime is available in two finishes – Clime Honed with a subtly textured surface and Clime Course with a rougher texture achieved through recycled crushed marble. The plaster comes in 15 natural hues and custom textured finishes, including banding, layering, and pearlescent washes.

Manufactured by blending natural materials into a powder at Armourcoat’s UK factory, the surfacing is mixed with water on-site to produce the plaster. Clime not only offers aesthetic appeal but also contributes to healthy indoor environments, with a natural breathable finish that absorbs toxins, regulates humidity, and resists mold and mildew.
