Uses of Plastering

Plaster can be utilised in a variety of ways within the construction industry. As an example, its uses include plastering internal and external spaces, decorative plastering as well as project specific applications which are built around specific materials. Applications of plaster are so vast that it is possible to effectively simulate the surfaces and textures of various building materials such as wood, stone, metal and marble. Plastering courses can teach you the basics in best plastering techniques as well as equip you with more specialised skills.

Plastering Tools & Techniques

Plastering courses will give you an understanding of the variety of materials that construction plaster is made of, including lime, cement and gypsum. These are adapted using chemical additives to neutralise its harmful effects. Expanded polystyrene may also be used in ground layers for insulation purposes, due to its heat-retardant properties. Through plastering courses, you will also learn how, depending on the project requirements, plasterers may use more traditional materials such as clay, laths or sands.

Plastering courses and training options

Just as the uses for plaster are endless, they is an array of options when choosing the right training course. Plastering courses range from short courses to DIY workshops and one-on-one practical trainings - possibly even on your own project! If you would first like to practice before embarking on your own project, many training providers have spaces solely dedicated to plastering courses, allowing participants to learn the techniques under safe, but realistic conditions and with the appropriate tools and materials. For aspirants based in Essex, here is a list of plastering courses in Essex.

After completing a plastering course, participants are sure to have opportunities to apply this critical skill on a variety of projects. Seeing as construction is such a high-demand field, providers of plastering courses can often put students in contact with real contractors who may be able to offer payed employment.

Plastering Health & Safety

Due to the chemical reaction that is sparked when powdered plaster is mixed with water, working with plaster can be dangerous and requires proper safety training. Some older forms of plaster also contain the dangerous chemical, asbestos, and require extra caution in situations of removal. While you can take construction and work and safety courses individually, many plastering courses will choose to combine the two. In order to stay up to date with the latest health and safety regulations in construction and plastering, you can look to institutional bodies such as UKATA, NEBOSH and IOSH.
