Plastering – A foundation to good exterior finish

Exterior Plastering acts as a foundation to the finishing&provides weather protection. Sand plays a major role in plastering. There are two types of sand available for the construction industry, natural sand & manufactured sand. Both have their pros & cons. Natural sand is found in riverbeds& is excellent for construction. However due to environmental reasons, it’s mining or dredging will soon have to be stopped. Manufactured sand is made from rock & has rough edges which make it difficult to deal with. There are certain chemical additivesas well as equipment which take care of these edges & shape it up to a nice friendly & workable form.

Plastering Problems

  1. Sand problems – Incorrect gradation, impurities, salt contain, excess water
