Specialist in internal wall plastering
For over 16 years CAB Plastering have been specialising in all types of internal plastering work, from small repairs, to full property refurbishment. We are also experts in fireproofing, soundproofing and moisture problems.
We are highly skilled in a variety of coatings and tecniques and use many of the following depending on the project in question:
Bonding is an undercoat plaster. This means it is the first coat, or undercoat to be applied to a new (or to be patched) wall. When it is trowelled off, it is scratched with a nail to give a “key” for the top coat, or finish plaster to adhere to. Bonding plaster has incredible “stickabilty” and does not rely on an absorbent surface to bond to.
Bonding can be applied to really dense concrete blocks or engineering bricks and even concrete itself. These surfaces are where you would use bonding plaster as a scratch coat. Bonding does not need the wall underneath to be scratched or have a mechanical “key” and bonding agents, such as latex SBR adhesive are usually applied to the wall before the bonding plaster itself.
Browning plaster is also an undercoat plaster for use on more absorbent surfaces.
Browning plaster works much better on surfaces with a mechanical key and you will often see bricklayers “raking out” the joints of block and brick walls which are to have a Browning plaster covering.
Hardwall is similar to Browning except that it offers a higher impact resistance and quicker drying surface. It is the most often used undercoat plaster these days, and can be applied to most masonry surfaces.
Tough Coat Plaster
Even tougher than Hardwall as an undercoat plaster, and has a greater coverage based on the nominal depth of 11mm. Again, suitable for most masonry walls.
Dri-coat plaster is a cement-based plaster used when resurfacing a wall after installation of a new DPC.
Thistle multifinish is a top coat plaster which is suitable for a great finish on all the other surfaces. Multifinish is ideal for (indeed, is manufactured for) using as a finishing plaster when there are a variety of backing surfaces to be covered.
Board finish plaster is used on surfaces with low – medium suction. Plasterboard and Dry-Coat plaster will accept Board Finish well.
One Coat Plaster
Sometimes called patching plaster, this plaster is a mix of something like binding plaster and multifinish. It is designed to fill patches in one go and can be “laid on” to far greater thicknesses than normal undercoat plasters. Anything up to 50mm some manufacturers claim.
