Clayworks – “Best International Surface Finishes- 2012″
Clayworks Clay Plaster is a high-performance wall finish with breathtaking beauty and extraordinary eco and healthy-building credentials. It is set to revolutionise the world of interior wall finishes, replacing gypsums and paints and exceeding all foreseeable environmental building regulations.
Clay plasters are one of the oldest and most natural building products in the world. Until two years ago Clayworks, one of the world’s leading authorities in clay, took the clay subsoil on site for one-off individual projects. It was dug up, soaked, sieved and mixed to create a clay plaster.
After two years of intensive R&D in conjunction with Bath University, Clayworks launched the UK’s first range of standardised products, scientifically tested and able to be shipped to plasterers worldwide. Tests prove they have a similar performance rating with gypsum plaster but take 85 per cent less energy to create, can be composted, are non-toxic and contain no chemicals.
Made from unfired clays and sands, clay plasters are breathable (with excellent vapour permeability) and hygroscopic. Unfired clay can absorb and desorb indoor humidity faster than any other building material and will regulate relative interior humidity between 40 per cent and 70 per cent, the level at which the likelihood of airborne infectious bacteria and viruses surviving is the lowest. It also prevents building materials from emitting toxins such as formaldehyde, and helps prevent the occurrence of mould. There is also evidence of how clay plaster can treat pollutants and neutralise indoor odours – all pretty useful in restaurants.
