Modified Plaster Additives
There are additives used for the regular plaster mix that do help produce positive results. Polymers and or pozzolans have been introduce to the mix and tested in the past for cements other than swimming pool plaster. These special blends have been proven to add substantial strength to the cements performance over documented time.
When added to a traditional plaster mix it helps prevent the precipitation of the important bi-products of plaster during its curing and aging process. One of them being the natural salts of the cement known as calcium hydroxide better known by pool service technicians as plaster dust during the first weeks after applying the plaster. Our silicone shields additive seals the cement which helps convert this Hydroxide into less soluble compounds for a more durable finish.
