Used mainly for protective or decorative coating, plaster is one of the most commonly used mixtures in building. Plaster is manufactured in the form of a dry powder to be later mixed with water. This process creates a stiff paste ready to be applied on the chosen surface.
Typically, plaster is suitable for walls and ceilings located in the interior of the building. It can be combined with a variety of binding materials, such as lime to create a substance similar to mortar. When plaster is mixed with concrete, it is best suited for damp conditions. Mud plaster is usually applied in two layers, while stucco plaster is used for exterior walls to achieve a decorative effect. A venetian plaster is a mixture of plaster and marble. When applied in thin layers, it creates an illusion of depth. Buildiro also offers multi finish plaster, which is combined with gypsum and offers a durable base for further decorative works.
