Apply plaster and what you should pay attention

Frequently, so-called plasters are used to design wall surfaces. These often contain UV-resistant and mineral color pigments, which are intended to protect the facade from the sun's rays. A distinction is made between thin-layered and thick-layered fine plaster, whereby the thick-layered materials are applied a little more strongly and then scratched back.

Advantages of applying plaster

One of the biggest advantages of finishing plaster is that it is usually recyclable and ecologically safe. In addition, the material contains no polluting solvents or preservatives. However, some agents contained additions of substances for a targeted adjustment to the different substrates and a possible limitation of water absorption. Important advantages of the material are the following:

  • Noble plasters are lightfast.
  • In addition, they are resistant to weathering.
  • The materials are recyclable.

This is how the facade insulation works with fine plaster

The application of the precious plaster works in a few, few steps. The first step is to touch the material. It is essential to follow the manufacturer's instructions regarding the addition of water. Do not forget to apply a foil to the areas to be protected to avoid accidentally applying the cleaning material to unwanted areas. The fine plaster is brought up to the wall with a rust-proof, grain-thicker, and as thin as possible. Then it can still be provided with a structuring, for example with the aid of a foam rubber board. In the case of Munich Rauputz, a plastic rubbing board is used.

Application of precious plaster and the necessary preparatory work

The type of processing differs according to the type of plaster material used. In addition, the type of processing has a significant impact on the appearance of the interior wall or the corresponding facade. However, it is always very important to prepare the ground carefully. For example, unevennesses on the wall, such as damage in the form of holes, must be closed. In addition, it is important to clear the wall of dust and loose dirt before the fine plaster is applied. If you want to be on the safe side, first plaster a smaller area to test the material's processing and find the right course of action. Also helpful are the processing instructions on the packaging of the respective manufacturer of the materials.
