PlasterMaxTM is an extremely hard mineral-based interior plaster that is highly resistant to impact, abrasion and other abuses and provides outstanding abuse resistance for high traffic and use building spaces. This abuse-resistant interior wall finish is an ideal finish for many commercial and institutional buildings including education, retail, medical, hospitality, public safety, correctional facilities, and multi-family housing.
|High impact and abrasion resistance||At an incredible 8,500 PSI compressive strength, PlasterMax is one of the most durable interior wall finishes available today.|
|Non-combustible||Does not burn and provides an additional layer of protection form fires and flame spread indoors. Meets NFPA 101 Life Safety Code.|
|Low shrinkage||Mineral-based cement does not shrink during curing unlike Portland cement, reducing chances for cracking of the finish.|
|Low VOC||Natural ingredients and low in volatile organic compounds for quality indoor environments.|
ONE-COAT, TWO-PASS INSTALLATION
PlasterMax finish options include (1) hard troweled to a smooth flat finish, (2) worked with a sponge trowel to reveal fine aggregate for a textured finish, or (3) worked with a textured roller or stencil to create an ornamental finish.
- Bautex Block
- Gypsum or cement wall board
- Fiber or magnesium-oxide wall board
- Concrete Masonry Units (CMU)
StuccoMax can be applied at different thicknesses, but is typically installed at 3⁄16″ final thickness for Level III (highest) abuse resistance. Following are typical yields for a 75 pound bag of PlasterMax material:
|Coverage for 75 pound bag||40 sf|
|Weight per square foot||1.78 lbs|
*Product yields may also vary due to water content and substrate conditions.
StuccoMax can be left a natural tan color by simply applying a concrete sealer after the wall finish has cured.
In cases where a solid color is desired, StuccoMax can be painted.
StuccoMax will accept concrete stains, but the resulting color profile will tend to be more muted and mottled than a painted wall.
Interior Wall Coating System
PlasterMax is manufactured from all natural elements, contains no Portland cement or silica, and exceeds USEPA and California indoor air quality and VOC standards. This interior wall coating system provides a durable and attractive finish to any building.
