New Product Launch - Sovereign Plasprime®
One of the biggest challenges for plasterers is dealing with the multitude of backgrounds on to which plaster must be applied, particularly when re-skimming old, previously plastered walls. Using Sovereign Plasprime® negates the need to refit using dry lining systems or by removing existing plaster. Traditionally to overcome difficult backgrounds a plasterer would apply a coat of PVA adhesive and sealer or a bonding agent to the surface. The plaster must then be applied whilst the bonding coat is tacky, giving only a limited window of opportunity. Furthermore, where different backgrounds are encountered the bonding coat will dry at different rates increasing the difficulties in application.
The final hurdle when using a bonding coat is that they are clear and so it is difficult to gauge that the whole surface has been prepared. Areas missed can result in the delamination and cracking of the subsequent coat of plaster.
Plasprime® eliminates all these problems by producing a phenomenal, lightly textured surface never before seen. The unique properties of Plasprime® also means that unlike other materials on the market it does not settle out during storage eliminating wastage and giving a consistent product throughout.
Plasprime® is applied by brush or roller and allowed to completely dry as part of the preparation process therefore it is ready as and when you choose to apply the plaster.
