-> GSBN: Lime & Cement Plaster
     by Derek Roff derek@...

Subject: GSBN: Lime & Cement Plaster

I checked my copy of John's report, and here are a few numbers:

1:3 portland cement to sand - 39 metric perms (0.68 US perms)
1:1:6  portland cement to lime to sand - 295 metric perms (5.13 US 

These figures show that the addition of lime to a portland cement 
stucco mix dramatically increases the moisture 
permeance/permeability.  I believe that the 1:1:6 mixture was the one 
Kelly proposed.
