PlasterLite is a super-smooth, easy-to-apply composite material for trowel-on plaster and low-velocity pumped plaster applications.

It combines the right combination of expanded Perlite with quality cement, various admixtures and fibres in a bag to offer a unique one-coat plaster solution. Simply mix with water and apply using traditional methods
 

Thermal insulation

Perlite possesses millions of tiny air particles that act as insulation cavities that reduce heat transmission. A significantly higher R-value saves on heating and cooling costs. The installed thermal conductivity (K-value) of PlasterLite is 0.1046 W/m·K. The thermal conductivity (K-value) of ordinary cement and sand-based plaster is 0.71 W/m·K.
