Luxurious and unique finishes
The term ‘polished plaster’ covers a wide range of decorative plaster finishes. These vary from
thin and highly polished finishes that resemble polished marble to deeply textured effects that can emulate travertine
or limestone. The history of polished plaster
can be traced back to the Egyptians.
Armourcoat Polished Plasters are made from slaked lime, marble dust and/or marble chips to create the unique look of each finish. Armourcoat develops and manufactures all its own brand materials in the UK and over the years has progressively honed its formulas with special additives to increase product hardness and durability. A protective layer of wax or a sealer can also be applied to enhance performance and appearance.
Armourcoat polished plasters
are hand applied by trained applicators using traditional techniques. A typical build up is between 1 mm and 4mm and consists of a special primer, a keycoat , 2 to 4 finish coats and a wax or sealer.
