Veneer plaster systems were developed during the 1960s and early 1970s. These systems took advantage of large-sized gypsum panels to improve the speed of installation while providing a monolithic-appearing, harder, more abuse-resistant surface. In addition, overall plaster thickness was reduced from the standard 1/2" to 7/8" associated with conventional plaster to a mere 1/16" to 1/8". This was achieved by using high-strength plaster in product formulations. The combination of reduced thickness and high-strength material reduced drying time and provided a more serviceable finish.
The performance and surface appearance of veneer plaster systems can be rated between those for conventional plaster and gypsum drywall.
