Since lime renders have slow development of strength, especially in conditions of increased humidity, different types of additions were often used trough history, in order to improve their resistance and durability. This paper presents the effects of locally produced fine crushed tile aggregate addition on physical and mechanical properties of lime-based coating, representing final outer layer of traditional renders, both in normal and increased humidity conditions. This aggregate has been used as partial replacement of natural river aggregate, with granulation 0/0,5 mm in amount of 25, 50, 75 and 100% by volume. Flexural and compressive strength, capillary water absorption, ultrasonic pulse velocity, dynamic modulus of elasticity and open porosity were tested on prismatic samples at the ages of 14, 28 and 60 days. Results show the positive effects of crushed ceramic addition at all ages, especially for the samples cured in humid conditions.
