Plaster Products

Employed for decorating and protecting the ceilings and walls of buildings, plaster is a material that's been used since the times of the Egyptians. The term "plaster" generally refers to the material that is used on the insides of houses in Great Britain. The material that's used for on external areas is termed "render". The plaster formula itself can include different compounds but most frequently consist of either cement, gypsum, or lime. All these mixes work in pretty much the same way, but are used for different things. Mixed with water to produce a stiff but easy to work paste, plaster is simply a dry, fine powder when it is manufactured. The resulting reaction between the plaster powder and water produces heat by way of crystallization and the mixture then becomes hard. For buying plaster products you can head over to Screwfix, Travis and Perkins, British Gypsum, B&Q or Wickes.
