Decorative protective plaster - home decoration and the pride of the owners
Finishing plaster, namely decorative and protective - this is a special coating that is simultaneously responsible for the aesthetic appearance of the building, and for its thermal insulation. It is a significant component in the process of thermal insulation of the facade of the building, carried out using the “wet facade” technology. Such a plaster has several varieties: mineral, silicone, polymer, etc. You can see the options of colors and textures here http://venecianka.ru/catalog/dekorativnaya-shtukaturka/fasadnaya
But the main role of finishing plaster is still its ability to create an excellent building decor. First of all, a variety of textures and a huge color palette of the material are striking.
It is natural that each type of plaster coating has its own distinctive features and characteristics inherent only to it. So, mineral plaster changes its shade under the influence of tinting with facade paint.Other types of such coatings go on sale in a previously prepared form, which means their color is initially predetermined by the manufacturer. A similar situation awaits you when purchasing paint and varnish products.
The texture of the coating can be grooved and uniformly rough, smooth and grainy. In smooth surfaces, the grain size should not exceed 1 mm, and in granular sizes it can reach 7 mm.
There are nuances and when applying a textured coating. Protective and decorative plaster is applied strictly on top of the cleaned base layer with a very large trowel. The previous layer should be completely dry. Otherwise, the next coating will be poor quality, and all its protective properties will disappear.
Weather conditions, especially rain, have a devastating effect on the decorative plaster coating, being for him the most potent negative factor. That is why the finish coating should be particularly resistant to contrasting climate conditions, to any aggressive media.
After examining the finishing plaster under a strong increase, you can see that it has microscopic pores, also called capillaries.If moisture begins to seep through them, the plaster will lose all its protective properties.
To prevent this from happening, additional materials are used in tandem with it. It can be all sorts of primers, impregnations and even paints. Sometimes special panels or stone tiles are superimposed over the surface. In this matter it is very important not to overdo it. After all, absolute waterproofness also has a destructive effect, because the building needs a harmonious circulation of water vapor.
In the selection of decorative and protective plaster should pay particular attention to its performance and strength characteristics, which should be at the highest level. Only such coverage will decorate the facade of the building and provide its owners with comfortable accommodation.
