  • Offers smooth or textured veneer plaster finishes
  • May be left undecorated when skip-troweled, floated or applied with other texture techniques
  • Is applied directly over USG Imperial® Gypsum Base in 1/16-in. to 3/32-in. thicknesses
  • Dries in as little as 24 hours under normal environmental conditions
  • Is generally ready for next-day decoration with a latex-base breather type paint (PVA paints are not recommended)
  • Offers substantial savings in finishing materials and application time

Note — USG Norfolk™ Veneer Finish is available in select markets.
