SMET NHL 3.5 & NHL 5 binders were specially selected for the restoration of the historical Warrenpoint Parish Church, Church of Ireland. As part of the sympathetic restoration, the traditional Church tower was restored and the exterior render reinstated using SMET high quality pure Natural Hydraulic Lime binders: SMET NHL 5 & SMET NHL 3.5.
