PLASTERS

Types of Gypsum Plasters

Levelling plasters

Levelling plasters are applied onto uneven background surfaces. The aim of applying this type of plaster is to ensure a level and plumb substrate. These applications normally call for thicker application of product (10mm+). Examples of this type of plaster would be plasters applied to raw brick and block or concrete to obtain a level and/or plumb surface. For use on internal walls only, must not be used externally.

Finishing Plasters

Two types of finishing plasters can be differentiated:

  1. One Coat Multipurpose

One coat plasters provide levelling and finishing in one application. These plasters are applied onto uneven surfaces. Applying this type of plaster ensures a level and plumb substrate and provides a smooth surface finish. These applications normally call for thicker application of product (10mm+).
