Coating plaster for outdoor use

Coating plaster for the outside is not as common as for the interior, but it does exist. In many cases, these are merely emulsion paint with some special properties and structural appearance, in other cases, the coating has then additional properties, such as a lotus effect.

Facade surface plaster as a plaster coating

Facade plasters must be highly resistant, weather-resistant and particularly well-adhering - a surface plaster for the façade must thus adhere particularly well to the substrate. This can not be achieved with most of the painted plasters for indoor use, so you should never use a plaster on the facade for the interior. The special textured plasters, which can also be painted on the façade, have completely different material properties than interior plasters. However, roller coats for the outside can sometimes be painted with a tassel - but the process is only time-consuming and laborious, without bringing a real advantage.

Lime plaster as a coating for the outside

Burnt lime can also be applied to the outside of rustic stone buildings - today, unlikely lime and lime lime are hardly used anymore, except occasionally inside stables. Old buildings receive a faithful appearance and a very weather-resistant surface, but the bright white color of the lime usually fades after a relatively short time and must therefore be renewed to regain the original shine. There are also lime plasters for modern facades, but these are usually rolled rather than painted.

Brushed plaster with lotus effect

The so-called lotus effect or nano-effect allows dirt to remain attached to the facade, washed off by the rain and washed away - alternatively by a high-pressure cleaner. This is because, after completion, the surface contains minute structures, such as those found on lotus leaves, that do not adhere to dirt particles. However, such plasters are usually very expensive.
