The German Institute for Sustainable Construction (German acronym DINB) has classified the Calcea and Carema lime systems produced by Zement und Kalkwerke Otterbein as “building-biologically sound”.
Having already been awarded with an “allergic-friendly product” certificate by Germany’s Institute of Environment and Health (German acronym IUG) last year, all 19 lime-based Otterbein products have now also received a positive ranking from DINB. Otterbein’s lime plaster and lime coating systems are therefore officially recognized as high-quality building materials for use in achieving building-biologically sound, sustainable homes and indoor climates. As of immediately, the DINB website (www.dinb.de) is offering a collection of product profiles for quick, well-founded reference. This entire Otterbein assortment is based on the natural product lime. The products contain no cement and no synthetic or organic binders.
