Polished Plaster (Venetian Stucco)
Italian Polished Plasters such as Stucco Veneziano (Venetian Stucco), Marmorino, and waxed plasters, have all been used for thousands of years. Originally they were designed as an external coating to keep salt water from penetrating building walls in Europe, in such places like Venice, as far back as 1500 years ago. Polished Plaster is one of the only materials still available today that has this property, making it perfect for both internal and external applications.

Polished Plaster is usually comprised of natural materials, and is mostly made of aged lime putties or lime plasters and Marble flour. Some are as high as 60% in natural Marble dust or flour content, hence when applied and flattened with a trowel, becomes hard and glossy, and feels just like real marble, concrete or stone. Once cured and treated properly, polished plasters are one of the hardest and most durable surface coverings still being used today.

With all the different techniques, textures and colours available, it is possible to achieve a distinctive and interesting finish every time. Even the level of shine and smoothness to the surface is variable.

So whether it is your hotel entry foyer or front reception entrance, we can customise a surface finish to be as unique as you are. We can create any desired feel, or specific effect necessary for the application, and the colour palette required. With a huge range of Stucco plaster finishes available, and the use of stencilling and marbling techniques offered, the possibilities are infinite and only limited by ones imagination.

Scupltural Walls + Features
Armourcoat Sculptural is a range of seamless, sculptural wall surface designs. These panels make it perfect to create an architectural designer wall finish that looks like a piece of artwork.

These sculptural walls are constructed from a series of pre-cast panels that are bonded to the substrate. The panel joints are then filled and sanded and a final decoration is applied to the surface. Armourcoat Sculptural designs are created by combining computer-aided design with traditional hand sculpting, to create designs that fit together with total accuracy, yet retain the essence of being hand crafted, with a range of stunning designs available. Given enough time, even a bespoke design is possible.

Some of the designs are based on a single panel that creates a repeating pattern; others are made from a sequence of different panels that can be integrated together in many different ways to create totally unique sculpted walls. The multiple panel designs make it possible to create non-repetitive seamless sculptural walls where the designs flow and change across the surface just as in nature, and as a consequence, no two walls need ever be identical.

Armourcoat's Sculptural panels are mineral based and incorporate up to 30% post-consumer recycled content (depending on design), are non-toxic, and are completely non-combustible. The panels are extremely dense and hard with a smooth ceramic-like surface.

Armourcoat’s Sculptural panels are perfect for all commercial applications such as hotel foyers, entries, receptions, restaurants and cafes. These sculptural panels are also gorgeous as a feature wall at home, or use just a few panels to create a modern piece of individual art.

With the combination finish of polished plaster and sculptural panels, you can create a look everyone will be captivated by. Contact our friendly staff today for further information regarding this unique product line.

Scupltural Walls + Features
Marmorino Veneziano (Venetian Marmorino) is a type of plaster or stucco that was used as far back as Roman times, and was very popular once more during the Renaissance 500 years ago in Venice. It is made from crushed marble and lime putty, which can be tinted to a wide array of colours. This can then be applied in a variety of ways to make numerous textures, from polished marble to natural stone effects.

Its appeal has now spread worldwide as the finish is high-end, and many examples can be found in public buildings, bars, and restaurants. Its waterproofing and antibacterial qualities as well as visual effects have also made it very desirable for luxury bathrooms, indoor swimming areas, and other wet areas. Not confined to interior use, it can be seen on the exterior of many buildings to great effect.

WALLS - Suitable for surfaces such as Gyprock, plasterboard and plastered blockwalls & masonary surfaces. It can also be applied to MDF, glass, marble, concrete or GRG.

FLOORS - It is recommended that this finish is only used in low traffic areas, and it should be treated with the same care as wood or soft-stone flooring.

With Marmorino, the selection of colour and finish is limitless. Contact our friendly staff today to design your own customised surface.

Traditional White Set Plaster
Traditional white set plaster, or hard plaster as it can be known, is an age old technique that can be found in older and heritage style buildings. With our 35 years of industry experience and old school techniques, we are one of the few solid plastering companies still around, that have the skills and knowledge to be able to offer these traditional methods of plastering.

Most old buildings and high rises built here around the mid 1960's have traditional cement render and white set walls internally, especially throughout our older cities like Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide and Perth. The use of white set plaster is extensive in countries throughout Europe and in America, and has stood the test of time.

As white set plaster is far stronger and more durable than any plasterboard or gypsum wall could ever be, the use of white set plaster is slowly returning to favour, especially to projects within the commercial and retail sectors. Recently we have rendered and white set all of the internal columns and walls to the new Coles and Target stores inside the Westfield Carindale Shopping Centre in Queensland. These columns and walls will stand up to the high traffic and consistent wear they will face over the years.

So if you are looking for a tried and tested, age-old finish able to withstand just about anything you can throw at it, contact our friendly staff today, to see how this finish can keep your walls looking better for longer.

Castings + Mouldings
Plastacraft can help transform the inside of your home from boring to brilliant. With the vast choice of internal decorative mouldings and castings available, we can find a moulding profile to suit your design needs, be it modern, contemporary, heritage or colonial.

There are as many types of mouldings available as there are surfaces to mount them on. Mouldings are generally made from timber; however they can be made from such materials as plaster, MDF (medium density fibre) board, or polymer-based products.

Decorative mouldings add style and visual impact to your home, along with warmth and character. Think of picture rails, ceiling roses, cornices, skirting boards, door frame mouldings, mantelpieces, internal columns, and window pelmets, to any type of panel moulding for walls and ceilings.

Architectural mouldings can make the difference between design success and design disaster, so it is important to find a team that has the expertise to create your stunning new look. Because we are old school plasterers with some 35 years of trade experience, we are one of the few Solid Plastering companies that still have the skill and knowledge to offer these types of services. So why not contact our friendly staff today, to discuss the endless possibilities available to you through our wealth of experience.
