Used for decorating and protecting ceilings and walls in buildings, plaster is a material which has been used since the days of the ancient Egyptians. In the UK the term "plaster" usually pertains to a material that is used on the insides of structures, while the material used on outside surfaces is referred to as "render". The most commonplace forms of plaster typically contain either lime, cement, or gypsum, though all work in pretty much the same way. Plaster is a dry powder when manufactured and when required, is combined with water to produce a stiff but easy to work paste just prior to application. The blending of the plaster and water causes a reaction, and heat is generated by means of crystallization, making the resulting paste go hard.
