An Information Guide on Plastering Beads




Plaster needs to dry properly for maximum strength and structural integrity. While plaster is still wet, it can be prone to unwanted damage. Modern plastering techniques include the use of rendering and plastering beads to reinforce corners. Imagine how inconvenient it is when you have to redo plaster application because of damage. In most plaster applications, plastering beads are used to protect the angle where two surfaces intersect. Plastering and rendering beads are usually made from galvanised iron in combination with metal lath. It is installed before the mortar or plaster material is applied on the surface.
