Installation

The glue for plaster stucco should be gypsum. We do not recommend using MS POLYMER-based adhesives.

Gypsum glue allows for easy assembly, correct positioning of glued elements, correct gluing of joints and preliminary processing.

We recommend glue SEMIN CE78 1 hour, which is used by our tradesmen. We are able to supply his type of glue.

One bag of SEMIN CE78 - 20 kg is enough for approx. 40 linear meters of medium (approx. 10 x 10 cm) ceiling strip. For small flat strips you will need about half as much glue, i.e. 1 bag for about 80 meters.

It is best to install stucco before painting.

The area must be clean, dust-free, primed and preferably unpainted. In the case of painted walls, cut or tear off the paint locally where the stucco meets the wall. Otherwise, the stucco and the paint may peel off from the plaster.

  • Gypsum glue – we recommend SEMIN CE78 1 hour
  • Miter box (in the case of flat and ceiling strips)
  • Hand saw for wood 550 mm
  • Bucket
  • Spatula
  • Steel nails or support poles (temporarily bonded with glue, in the case of facets and heavier
    ceiling elements)
  • Gypsum putty (for processing joints and joints)
  • Abrasive cloth 100 and 150
  • Quick assembly pins (for heavy strips)

Yes, plaster can be freely cut using a wood saw. The elements are reinforced with fiberglass, so they can be cut without fear of chipping and cracking. However, remember to do it from the "face" side (visible after installation).

Yes, the elements are reinforced with glass fiber, so you can drill holes without fear of chipping and cracking.

This shouldn't be done. The stucco will then not stick to the wall, only to the wallpaper, which will increase the risk of the stucco detaching from the wall, and dirt after gluing the stucco may be visible on the wallpaper and difficult to remove. First, we install the stucco, then we cut the wallpaper.

Yes, gypsum stucco absorbs and releases moisture very well, which can help maintain the appropriate humidity level.

Yes, plaster stucco will also work great in the kitchen. After painting with kitchen/bathroom paint, the stucco becomes washable.

Yes, in this case you should exceptionally use silicone for gluing. However, you should pay special attention to the back of the stucco to make sure it is not dusty. It can be wiped with a damp sponge or primed. Moreover, the substrate must be clean and degreased.

Yes, gypsum stucco, is completely resistant to high temperatures. It can be safely used for fireplace surrounds, even close to the insert door.

Finishing and maintenance

Plaster Stucco can be painted with any paint: cement, lime, silicate, acrylic, vinyl, latex or ceramic. The type of paint depends on the function of the room in which it is to be used and the place where the stucco is to be used. We recommend priming the stucco before painting, which will reduce paint consumption.

With normal use (vacuuming, washing floors), there are no problems with the skirting boards. After painting, it is recommended to additionally cover the strips with varnish, which will not only protect against moisture but also strengthen the surface.
