Clay finish from natural raw materials
Environmentally friendly clay finish consists of different types of sand and colored clay and contains no chemical color pigments or additives. The product is healthy for people and nature. Because the clay finish consists of natural raw materials, this product, unlike most construction products, does not cause irritation to the respiratory tract or skin.

Application of clay finish
Clay finish is practical to use and can be used as a finish for interior walls. Clay finish can be applied on a flat surface, such as plasterboard or other “wallpaper-ready” walls. It can also serve as a finishing layer for basic loam. For an optimal heat and moisture regulating effect, you need a basic loam surface of 1.5 to 3 cm. You can apply a thin layer of 2 to 3 mm clay finish over this. Is the environmentally friendly clay finish applied to a smooth plastered wall? Then a thickness of 3 mm is desirable. A thickness of 2 mm is suitable for a wall where sanding is still going to take place.
