Cement plaster/render; how its done

Cement and sand are mixed in the dry state in the adopted ratio. For plastering of walls, a cement sand ratio 1: 6 is adequate.

Water is added to achieve a workable plasticity.

Cement plaster can be applied in 2 coats or as a single coat. Plaster thickness for walls ranges from between 12mm to 20mm. Plaster thickness of between 12 and 15mm can be applied as a single coat while thickness above 15mm are applied in 2 coats.

Cement Plastering in a single coat:

Cement plaster ( single coat)

The plaster is first applied roughly at the required thickness on the wall. Wait for about 20 minutes, (After the plaster starts to set), and gradually smooth it out with a straight long rod or plank. The plastering is then finished off with a hand trowel and finally foaming. The finished work should be straight and smooth.

Cement plastering in 2 coats

Cement plaster ( double coat)

This method is necessary when the plaster thickness is above 15mm. The first coat is applied roughly on the surface of the wall. The surface of the plaster is then made zigzag to receive the second coat. The second coat can be applied when the first coat sets ( about 30mins upwards). However it should be applied by the second day at the latest.

What to Plaster a Wall? See what you will need

Plastering a wall means you want to give the wall a smooth and level finish with the use of a cementitious compound. Plaster is a protective or decorative coating for walls and ceiling.If a wall is constructed of sandcrete blocks then chances are high that it will be plastered to give a very smooth aesthetic finish.

Difference between plastering and rendering

“plaster” usually means a material used for the interiors of buildings, while “render” commonly refers to applications on external walls.

Types of plaster

Gypsum Plastering
  • Gypsum plaster: Also called plaster of Paris, it is calcium sulphate hemihydrate a white cementing material composed of gypsum, retarded and hardeners. It is applied to the wall in a plastic state. It thereafter hardens by the chemical combination of the gypsum and water. Gypsum plaster are usually supplied in bags.
Gypsum plaster bag
  • Cement plaster: This is a mixture of portland cement and sand. It is applied in the plastic state after mixing with water. It thereafter hardens after the chemical combination of the cement and water. Ready mix cement plaster is supplied in bags.
Ready mix cement plaster

Cement plaster

This is the most commonly used plaster material because it is cheaper and more versatile than the gypsum plaster.

Ready mix cement plaster is available but expensive. It is more economical to mix on site, cement, sand and water and use it to plaster / design walls.

Materials needed for cement plaster

  1. Cement: usually supplied in 50kg bags.
  2. Plaster sand. A type of fine sand that bonds very well with cement in the presence of water.
  3. Clean water of drinking quality.

Mixing of cement and sand for plaster works

Thorough mixing of cement and sand is first done in the dry state. After that water is added and mixed to a workable plastic state before application. For plastering works, the cement sand ratio is usually 1:4 or 1:6. Ratio 1:6 being the more commonly adopted ratio.
