What Type of Plaster & Plasterboard Do I Need?

Plaster types
 

One coat plaster

Designed to act as a 2-in-1 base coat and finish. One coat plaster can also be used to fix up patches.  

Multi-finish plaster

Provides a great, smooth coverage on a variety of surfaces. It is a quick drying formula, with typical drying time of 1 and a half hours.  

Bonding plaster

Easy to apply and spread. Use for walls and ceilings with a smooth finish, or as a base coat on surfaces.  

Browning plaster

Browning plaster is similar to bonding plaster in that it can be used as a base undercoat or backing coat. Ideal for use on absorbent surfaces, such as common bricks.   

Hardwall plaster

As the name might suggest, hardwall plaster is heavy-duty and durable. This makes it ideal for use in areas with high traffic. It is fast drying and easy to apply.
 

Tough coat plaster

Magnetic plaster

Create practical walls with magnetic plaster. Perfect for pre-schools, primary schools and other places where a magnetic wall would come in handy. Be very careful not to overmix, as this may reduce magnetic qualities. 

Plasterboard types
 

Standard plasterboard

As standard as it comes, standard plasterboard is perfect for areas where only average acoustic, fire resistance and structural regulations are required. 

Moisture resistant plasterboard 

Moisture-resistant plasterboard is specially designed for use in wet conditions bathrooms and kitchens. 

Fire protection plasterboard

Thermal insulating plasterboard 

Thermal insulating plasterboards keep properties warm and ventilated, and keeps energy costs down. It also reduces condensation, which can lead to damp. 
 

Acoustic plasterboard 

Acoustic plasterboard is designed to reduce sound travelling between rooms, floors and adjacent dwellings. Perfect for soundproofing floors, walls and ceilings.

 

Plastering tips:

  • Add plaster to water, not the other way around! Otherwise you’re likely to get lumps.
