Plaster Bond



Plaster Bond

Plaster needs a plaster bonder for maximum adhesion on surfaces like drywall panels, cinder block, stone, and gypsum plaster. Plaster bonding agents are applied by rollers, brush, or spray for uniformity. They dry quickly, meaning they can be used even when you want to plaster the same day. You can also apply the agent and do the plastering up to 10 days later.

At BBS, we stock a vinyl acetate homopolymer emulsion plaster bonders from top North American manufacturers. Our bonders are available in either clear or tinted pink which makes it easy for you to do a visual inspection. If you are using a Durock® Brand Cement Board, a plaster bonder is a must-have.

If you are not sure what you need for your construction or remodeling project, worry not. The BBS team will guide you on the right type of plaster bonder as well as the quantities you need.

A plaster bonder provides a strong plaster adhesion to surfaces like stone, cinderblock, gypsum plaster, drywall panels, and other materials. The plaster bonder is easy to apply and dries quickly. You can apply the plaster the same day or within ten days. A plaster bonder consists of a vinyl acetate emulsion. It is effective in bonding plaster to any surface with a structurally sound interior. Some of its main features are:

  • Available in clear or tinted pink for an effective visual inspection when required
  • Easy to apply with a roller, brush or spray
  • The bonder dries quickly, allowing same-day plastering or plastering within ten days
  • After drying, the bonder forms a film that moistens whenever plaster is applied for a strong and long-lasting bond
