So the main difference between repairing plaster and finishing is that the result surface treated with finish looks better: it is a perfectly smooth, levelled surface, ready for further application of any type of paint or decorative material. The only thing you need to do is to choose the right type of it.
Bearing in mind that putty contains fine fillers, smoothing of walls and ceiling surface with finish should be done with a thin layer, usually from 0,1 to 10 mm only. Some finishing mixes can be applied in a thicker layer, but due to specific characteristics of the material it is recommended to do it only on small areas. For example, one can use certain types of it for repairing a small crack in the plastered surface or to apply in the joints between plasterboards. Besides, because of the fact that plasters is based on the more refined components, finishing will make the further use of paint or adhesives for wallpaper more economical. In case of paint application it will provide better covering of paint layers.
Technological procedure of work consists of the following stages: application on the surface of walls or ceilings, drying and subsequent polishing of the surface. Polishing is required for deleting errors of plaster application, for example traces of putty knife or trowel. Skilled specialists, of course can apply it in a perfectly smooth layer, which will not require subsequent polishing with sandpaper or only a little bit of it. But modern mixes can provide a good result even for those who are only beginners and not very much skilled.
The main requirements towards plasters for interior and exterior use are the following: when dried, they must form a solid smooth surface for further application of paint or wallpaper, they should not crack and must provide strong bond with the surface of the basis. Besides whilst being applied, putty mixture must spread evenly and easily without leaving traces from application tools. That can be achieved by proper recipe of the mix components: bonding, filling components and modifying additives. And of course, prepared mixture should not run down the wall or ceiling when applied. IVSIL finishing olasters is of good quality with sufficient elasticity and smoothness. When dried, it is easy to be polished and it does not fall out of the surface when touched.
