Check into the use of Dispersed Hydrated Lime. Why not use the same
basic lime binder?  Works amazing well for fine / deep cracks.

Dispersed hydrated lime is a carbonating binding agent for mortar,
supplementary stone compound, grouting compounds, injection
compounds and for plaster solidification.
