The finishing plaster is applied in a single layer of 3 or 4 mm thickness Argilus decorative clay finish plaster only comes in 25KG bags. 12 ready-to-use shades are available in this range. It is made of clay, flax fibres, extra-fine sand and natural colours including ochre. Finishing plaster is perfect for a smooth and extra-fine finish. It can be applied as a single layer over base coat plaster, direct to plasterboard or backing board or onto masonry, brick or stone as long as the surface is dry, clean and free from dust and loose material. For very smooth or porous substrates use ARGILUS primer undercoat.

No technical knowledge is required to use the plaster and the finish coat can be applied to any solid substrate such as plasterboard, brick, block or masonry.

One coat application - No need to paint. The plaster is applied in a single coat (unlike lime plasters) onto the prepared substrate and only requires finishing with a stainless steel trowel or sponge float depending on the plaster blend and required finish. There is no cost or disruption to paint

Super eco friendly – no allergens. Argilus clay plasters have achieved a coveted Greenspec PASS award certifying this as a genuine sustainable product. The plaster has the following features

  • 100% natural ingredients
  • Only water needed to use
  • No chemical or synthetic  compounds
  • Dries naturally
  • Very low embodied energy  - compared to gypsum or lime based plasters
  • Waste product can be composted
  • No potential for off gassing – giving of noxious fumes
  • Can be re-wetted and re-worked again and again so very little is wasted
  • Completely harmless to humans, animals and plants

Versatile uses. Argilus plasters have been used in a range of buildings including

  • Private houses
  • Schools
  • Hospitals
  • Hotels
  • Public buildings
  • Art galleries and museums
  • Churches

100% natural. The natural colours for the Argilus range contain no Titanium Oxide or other toxins used in traditional paints, the pigments are all 100% natural and come from sustainable sources. The range of colours runs from deep Burgundy reds to subtle shades of white. Argilus achieve perfect consistency of colour from batch to batch by employing a proven blending technique perfected over the years to achieve absolute consistency.

Years of experience – thousands of customers.  Argilus have sold over 500,000 bags of plaster to date or the equivalent of 3.5 million square metres.

All this at a very attractive price. Does all this Gallic flair come at a price…not at all…. in fact prices are comparable with the alternative options of lime or gypsum based plasters but crucially saving money because there is no need to paint.  All products are available to buy online or direct from Ecomerchant with next day delivery for most customers.

Typical price per m2 for Argilus plaster would be around £15 per square metre for the applied finish including materials and labour, the same job for lime plaster would begin around £22 per square metre (this can be much more) and for traditional gypsum plaster around £12 per square metre…..but for both of these two options a paint finish is required.

Clay plaster is making a welcome comeback thanks to its ecological, recyclable and easy to use properties. However, this type of plaster does not harden in the same way as cement-based or lime plaster. They harden due to the migration of the chemical constituents or by conversion of these chemicals from one state to another. Clay plaster hardens by the movement of water to the exterior ' in essence it dries not cures, this has important consequences for the plaster, making it re-workable once applied.  

For this reason, after applying clay plaster, good ventilation must be provided to allow the drying process to be controlled. In the UK simply opening windows and creating airflow will be enough

The drying process is a balance between humid air and dry air. Close to the surface of humid materials, the air is saturated or enriched with molecules of water vapour. For this reason, we recommend you ventilate rooms as much as possible to evacuate this surplus humidity, even in winter. When the dry air from the exterior comes close to humid surfaces, this air absorbs the molecules of water vapour. The drier the air, the more water it can absorb. The temperature of the exterior air and its humidity vary according to the season and to the region.

Example: Mr X applies 50 m² of ARGILUS NATURAL SINGLE LAYER plaster 2cm thick on a brick or stone wall. This plaster contains about 200 litres of mixing water. Explained simply, we can estimate that 200 000 grams of water need to be evacuated by ventilation. In the UK a typical May day has the ambient air has the potential to absorb a maximum of 3.5 grams / m3. With the windows open and a volume of air in the home of 60m3, 20,160 grams of water can be evacuated every 24 hours, so 10 days are needed with the windows (daytime only) open for complete drying. However, there are humidity extractors (widely available for rental) which are simple and effective machines which can reduce this drying time 2 to 3 days. In this case, the machine should be run with the doors and windows closed. This type of drying is safe and effective. It is recommended by ARGILUS for plaster applications greater than 1 cm thick and during the winter months.
