Cornish Lime is involved in a Research Programme in conjunction with Plymouth
University. We are heavily committed to developing sustainable and environmentally
friendly products for both building conservation and new build projects.
to reduce and recycle waste wherever possible and have recently invested in the
necessary plant and equipment needed to manufacture cob blocks. Production will
start shortly and this venture will enable us to recycle waste from our manufacturing
site into a sustainable and quality product which will be competitively priced.
Cob blocks are used in the repair and rebuilding of cob and earth buildings and
are manufactured from clay, straw and sand.
Our Hempsulate render is made from
hemp, lime and recycled minerals. It is a low carbon alternative to gypsum based
plasters and renders and has particularly good thermal properties. Being a “breathable” product
it is a perfect material for renovation work or as a practical and healthy option
in new build projects.
Our Aglaia Natural Paint range is manufactured from plant
extracts. Aglaia are one of only two companies who offer a full and frank declaration
of the ingredients used in their paints. Completely environmentally friendly

We also offer Naturepaint which is a range of paints is manufactured in Cornwall using natural and local
material like china clay. Naturepaint is 100% non-toxic and contains no petrochemicals
Sheepswool insulation offers
a natural and sustainable solution to both consumption of energy and the effects
of climate change. Wool is a better insulator and generates heat when it absorbs
moisture. Wool insulation is not only breathable but absorbs, retains and releases
moisture without affecting its thermal properties. Sheepswool insulation can
be used in lofts, rafter, internal all and inter-floor use. It has excellent
acoustic properties and is naturally fire retardant. In the event of a fire,
wool will not add to the fire risks and produces no toxic gases.
