Surface Preparation Code Substrate Description
SUBSTRATE / SURFACE DESCRIPTION White plaster is the main ingredient in paperfaced plasterboard, set plaster, fibrous plaster and other similar materials. They are generally used for interior ceilings and walls. MOST COMMON PAPERFACED PLASTERBOARD Paperfaced plasterboard is set plaster sandwiched between cardboard faces. The edges are recessed to allow the joints to be flushed with cornice cement or plaster compound. Paperfaced plasterboard should be flat and smooth on jointed areas, free of dust and have undamaged paper surfaces. Ensure paper has not been scuffed by sanding at jointed areas. Poor flushing of the joints or inadequate priming will cause visual "banding" when painted. Ensure a high quality of levelling and sufficient priming to unify surface porosity. Ensure water resistant grades have been used in areas where steam, condensation or moisture may occur. FIBROUS PLASTER, SET PLASTER Fibrous or set plaster should be inspected for fine surface cracks, uneven trowelling, large cracks & air bubbles. The surface should also be examined for excessive moisture around jointing & scrimmed areas, powdery or weak and "drummy" surface layers and areas of porosity differences and areas contaminated with oily release agents. Jointed areas using added lime should be checked for alkalinity. WATER RESISTANT PLASTERBOARD A paperfaced plasterboard which has been treated with a waterproofing material LEAST COMMON FYRELINE PLASTERBOARD A fire retardant grade of plasterboard. PLASTERGLASS A smooth, white cast plaster with glass fibre reinforcement used mainly for ceilings in Western Australia
