Plaster surfaces have both great practical and aesthetic value. Today, they are often used as a component of plastered external thermal insulation, usually using standard solutions that manufacturers offer as systems. The potential of plaster, however, goes far beyond the usual application practices. The publication invites you to look over the shoulder of the craftsman mixing and applying plaster and to explore the many possibilities plaster offers. 10 detailed formulations, developed and tested at ETH Zurich, as well as an illustrated glossary, offer practical guidance and make the publication a valuable handbook and guide.
