Plaster Masters Ecoplast is cement-based quality material composed of hydraulic binders, high-quality graded sand, and special additives. It is supplied as dry powder in pre-weighed bags ready to use on site, which requires only the addition of clean water to produce cohesive mortar, it contains special additives to provide good adhesion and shrinkage control.
Plaster Masters Ecoplast is used for masonry, civil repair, plastering on inner and outer walls. It can be used on brick, block, stone walls as well as concrete surface.
METHOD OF APPLICATION
The surface should be clean, sound and free from loose material, grease, oil paint etc. Prior to Plaster Masters Ecoplast application, soak the entire surface with clean water.
Mix Plaster Masters Ecoplast with 12-13 % water by weight of the material. Stir for 2-3 min, to have a consistency free of lumps.
