Pool Plaster Additives

Plaster Delay Set

Plaster Delay-Set is a dry powdered admixture packaged in a patented, ready-to-use, water soluble bag. Plaster Delay-Set is designed to slow down the set of plaster. It is invaluable in hot weather or when you have a shortage of workers, when you often need more time to work the plaster before it sets. It will not discolor or affect final strength of the plaster, it is very predictable in its use, and will not weaken the final strength of the plaster.

Used as directed, one bag will retard the set of plaster for about one hour, depending on temperature. Up to three bags may be used. Contains no chlorides, nitrites, nitrates or clay.

Advantages

  • Plaster Delay-Set slows down the set time of pool plasters.
  • It does not weaken the plaster.
  • It does not contain chlorides, nitrites, nitrates, clay or other materials that may be hazardous to your workers or harmful to the plaster.
  • It does not discolor plaster.
  • English and Spanish usage directions on every bag.
  • Very easy to store and carry.
  • Easy and safe to handle by workers.
  • Plaster Delay-Set is packaged in a patented water soluble Fritz-Pak inner bag for convenient use at the job site.

Compatibility

Plaster Delay-Set is compatible with most concrete admixtures. When used with other admixtures, each one must be dispensed separately into the mix.

Plaster Fast-Set

Plaster Fast-Set is a white, powdered, non-chloride set accelerator. It is ideal as a replacement for accelerators containing calcium chloride, which weakens plaster, causes corrosion and interferes with color. Plaster Fast-Set safely speeds up the set time and also greatly enhances plaster spreadability. It contains no nitrates, and is therefore not hazardous to workers, and requires no environmental reporting. One 5-lb bag of Plaster Fast-Set will reduce set times by up to three hours.

Advantages

  • Fast-Set accelerates the set time of plaster.
  • Does not contain calcium chloride.
  • Does not interfere with color.
  • Does not promote steel corrosion.
  • Can be easily stored for use as needed.
  • Dosage can be increased for faster acceleration.
  • Does not require heated warehousing.
  • It can be used in all weather.
  • It is suitable for all types of cement-based plasters.
  • English and Spanish usage directions on every bag.
  • Very easy to store and carry.
  • Prepackaged doses in patented water-soluble bags are simple to use.
  • Increases plaster workability.

Compatibility

Plaster Fast Set is compatible with most concrete admixtures. When used with other admixtures, each one must be dispensed separately into the mix.

Plaster Supreme

Plaster Supreme is a white, dry powdered admixture packaged in a patented, ready-to-use, water soluble bag. It is intended for use in pool plasters, to create a smooth, easily-spread plaster that reduces water loss and subsequent cracking. Plaster Supreme is a chemically active agent that improves the water retention of cement-based plasters, grouts and mortars. In pool plaster, this reduces water loss from evaporation, thus eliminating the need for constant re-wetting in warm conditions. It also reduces water loss to the concrete shell. This allows for better cement hydration and a more even finish. Plaster Supreme also contains pumping additives that make the plaster more workable and easier to trowel. Unlike clay-based additives, Plaster Supreme will not leave residues that can promote discoloration or increased plaster cracking.

Advantages

  • Plaster Supreme improves workability, making plaster smooth and easy to spread.
  • Greatly reduces cracks.
  • Slows evaporation, increases water retention.
  • Will not affect set times.
  • Will not discolor white plasters, and helps colors mix evenly in colored plasters.
  • Contains no clay, only 10 oz required to treat a standard plaster batch.
  • Easy and safe to handle by workers.
  • English and Spanish usage directions on every bag.
  • Very easy to store and ship.
  • Prepackaged doses in patented water-soluble bags are simple to use.

Compatibility

Plaster Supreme is compatible with most concrete admixtures. When used with other admixtures, each one must be dispensed separately into the mix.
