What types of plastering are there?

This tab table throws light upon the five main types of plaster for walls. As expert plasterers for bathroom refurbishments and other rooms in the house, we know which will be best suited for your needs.

Different types of special plastering materials are used in building construction for various purposes to provide aesthetic appearances to walls, columns and ceilings. These special plastering materials enhance several properties of plaster such as, durability, fire resistance, weather resistance, sound proof etc.



Stucco plaster is provided as a decorative feature where required. The plaster is composed of three coats making a thickness of 25 mm. The first coat, 10 mm thick, is known as a scratch coat, the second coat, which is also 10 mm thick, is called brown coat and the finishing coat or final coat is 4 to 6 mm thick and is called white coat.



Waterproof plaster is required for protection of the masonry wall from ingress of moisture and thereby eliminating or reducing dampness of wall. The plaster is made of cement and sand mix 1: 2. Pulverised alum is added at the rate of 12 kg per cubic metre of sand. Soft soap at the rate of 75 gms per litre is added in the water for mixing. Alum and soap react chemically and seal the pores in the plaster.



Lime plaster is prepared by mixing equal volumes of lime and sand. Boiled solution of bael fruit (in the proportion of 3 kg of gur and 1.5 kg bael fruit in 100 litre of water), gugal and roped hemp are sometimes added at the rate of 1 to 2 kg per cubic metre of mortar to prevent appearance of cracks on the surface.



Composite plaster is prepared by mixing cement, lime, surki or pozzolana and sand in different proportions. The plaster is applied on surfaces external or internal in different thicknesses and in one or two coats, as necessary.
