Fireplace Renovation: With Help From Thermalime

Recently we got to try a new product which was sent to us by a company called Thermalime (part of the Anglia Lime Company). This was a bag of their lime-based insulating plaster. This was our first time using the product and we were really pleased with its resultls. For instance, it was very easy to use and also easy to mix. We used this on the internal part of the fireplace (image below) just as a trial to see how we got on with it.
The product boasts that it is a "insulating lime render that is fully vapour permeable, has fantastic elasticity and durability. Thermalime is a one coat plaster that can be applied at any thickness, on any background."
We were impressed with the product as unlike many other lime plasters, it set much faster, which meant that the plaster could be applied and finished, depending on conditions, the same day. We did find this to be true, as it it did set very quickly which made the job easier - but without being so quick that it couldn't be controlled.
We love the product and will be using it again.
