Kal-Kore Plaster Base - 8 Pages

Veneer Plaster
09 26 13/NGC
Two-Coat System
(Kal-Kote® BRAND)
Ⅵ Kal-Kote System may be used
for plaster-embedded electric
radiant heating cable systems.
Ⅵ Same application techniques as
for conventional plaster.
Ⅵ Greater crack resistance than
one-coat systems.
Ⅵ Can be applied directly to
concrete block.
Ⅵ Not recommended for exterior
use or where subject to weathering, direct water contact or
temperature exceeding 125˚F
(52˚C) for extended periods of
Ⅵ Framing spacing is limited and
Veneer Plaster Systems consist of a
4' wide gypsum plastering base
with a special, highly absorptive
paper surface that is covered with
thinly troweled, special purpose
plasters. Two basic types of veneer
plaster are available: Uni-Kal and
X-KALibur, which are one-coat
plaster system products; and KalKote, a two-coat plaster system.
The gypsum plaster base, Kal-Kore,
is erected in the same manner for
both systems. Both veneer plaster
systems can be specified for virtually
all types of partition and ceiling
constructions including wood or
steel framing or furring and masonry.
For both residential and commercial
buildings, either type of veneer
plaster system produces a wall more
nail-pop resistant than drywall
and, when properly installed, more
crack resistant than conventional
lath and plaster.
The advantages of veneer plaster
over other commonly used partition
and ceiling systems include:
Ⅵ Rapid installation which reduces
overall construction time.
Ⅵ Appearance and surface of
conventional plaster at lower
cost than regular plastering.
Ⅵ High resistance to cracking,
nail-popping, impact and
abrasion failure.
Ⅵ Mill-mixed plaster components
help assure uniform installation
performance and finished job
partition heights are reduced in
comparison with some standard
Ⅵ Provides less rigidity than simi-
lar standard plaster
Ⅵ When Uni-Kal/X-KALibur will be
applied, do not install Kal-Kore
too far in advance of plastering
since Uni-Kal/X-KALibur bond
can be adversely affected if face
of Kal-Kore has become faded
from light. If Kal-Kore has been
faded, apply Kal-Kote Base
Plaster or a plaster bonding
agent to obtain good bond.
Ⅵ All are designed for trowel
application. Veneer Plasters are
not suitable for conveyance or
application by conventional
plastering machines.
Ⅵ Compared to conventional
plasters, Veneer Plaster Systems
are more subject to beading
(ridging) and cracking at the
joints under rapid drying conditions such as those caused by
low humidity, high temperature
and/or high draft exposure.
Ⅵ All provide a base over which
paints or other finishes should
be applied.
Ⅵ Do not use a polyethylene
vapor retarder unless structure
is ventilated adequately during
application of veneer plasters.
Ⅵ A bonding agent must be
applied to monolithic
concrete prior to application of
either system.
Ⅵ Do not sand finished plaster.
