Types of decorative plaster.
Depending on the composition of the mixture the decorative plaster can be classified as follows:
- Mineral plaster- this is based on cement and has a more affordable price, which needs to be painted after application.
- Acrylic plaster- a plastic synthetic material which allows you to create any texture with a roller and spatula.
- Silicone plaster- the most modern and versitile type of coating, which has excellent aesthetic properties.
Silicate plaster - this is made on the basis of potash glass and is used mainly for finishing facades, since it can release harmful substances. According to the type of filler, decorative plaster can be divided into several types:
- Textured- the most popular plaster in Spain. Due to its speciality of the filler (mica, small pebbles, wood fibers) unique patterns are created on the walls and facades.
- Structural- allows you to create a uniform coating, due to small grains of minerals or quartz. It has excellent breathable properties and a high resistance to moisture.
- Venetian- multi layer decorative coating with the addition of hydrated lime and marble chips.
Due to its luxurious gloss and expensive apperance, it is normally used to decorate rooms in a classical or antique style. Flock is another modern and popular coating on the market in spain, as its unusual appearance of the coating is achieved by means of multi-coloured insoluble particles, acrylic flakes or flocs.
