Have you ever worked on a job where it felt like you were doing more waiting around than actual plastering? If you find yourself needing to speed up the setting time of finishing plaster on small jobs, a plaster accelerator is what you need.
A plaster accelerator is a chemical additive for use with finishing plasters. At Plasterers 1 Stop Shop, our plaster accelerator of choice is the Halftime Plaster Accelerator by Eazymix (see also their range of plaster retarders here).
Eazymix’s Halftime Plaster Accelerator shortens the setting time of gypsum plaster by causing the gypsum crystals to form at a much faster rate. This is done without having any detrimental effect on the plaster or plastered surface. Halftime is ideal for small plastering jobs, and will shorten the setting time of any finishing plaster, including multi-finish and board-finishing plaster, by up to 60 minutes. The exact setting profile will be determined by the temperature of the room, the relative humidity of the surrounding environment and the surface being plastered.
There is no weighing, measuring or experimenting involved; Halftime Plaster Accelerator comes in convenient sachets (1 per every 5 liters of water used – approximately 12.5kg of plaster) that can be added directly to your mix.
