PLASTER SHEET DO AND DON'T

  • DO KEEP IT FLAT AND STRAIGHT.  When delivered, lay the plaster sheet on a flat and firm surface. This will allow the sheet to flatten and settle before it’s applied to the wall. Avoid touching the sheet as it settles.

  • DO NOT APPLY FORCE TO PLASTER ON A SOFT SURFACE. Avoid walking or placing anything on top of the sheet if it’s resting on a soft or bouncy surface. Any unnecessary force may cause the plaster to crack or break, as it bends under impact.  The plaster will flatten with gravity when laid out.

  • AVOID FOLDING OR BENDING THE SHEET. While the plaster is pliable, folding may damage or crack it. If you need to move the sheet during installation, put the sheet back on a roll or keep it straight by holding the sheet at the edges.

 

  • AVOID KEEPING THE SHEET ON A ROLL. Don’t leave your plaster on a roll for longer than a week. The plaster sheet adapts to the surface it is placed on, keeping it in a roll can leave the sheet with cracks on the curved areas. The longer the plaster stays on a roll, the more likely the cracks are.
