The LimeStrong plaster product line is designed and formulated for two category segments—a pair of BUILD grades for new construction or restoration projects, and three ARTISAN grades for thin-coat interior finish applications, such as those utilizing Venetian-style techniques.
COARSE GRADE primarily used for exterior applications. Used in some interior applications where a rough, rustic look is wanted, or as a base layer over straw bales, adobe brick, pumice-crete, or similar.
NOTE: LimeStrong Coarse sample packs ship components-complete (includes sand). For pallet-quantity orders, we typically ship LimeStrong Coarse without the sand component—this results in a significant savings in freight costs. You need only source a quality concrete sand locally to complete the LimeStrong Coarse formulation.
FINE GRADE primarily used for interior finish applications, including finish coat over scratch coats. Also used for plaster restoration projects.
