features and benefits

USG Structo-Gauge® Gauging Plaster mixes with lime putty to produce a high-strength, durable, white, smooth trowel finish. It applies faster and easier than USG Red Top® Keenes Cement for smooth finished surfaces and is available in two formulations — Quick Set and Slow Set. USG Structo-Gauge® Gauging Plaster:

  • Provides excellent hardness- and abrasion-resistance
  • Should be used over high-strength, wood fiber or sanded gypsum basecoats
  • Is ideal for high-traffic areas and other applications requiring durability and abuse-resistance
  • Meets ASTM C28
  • Is available in a Quick Set formula that sets in 30 to 40 minutes — ideal for use over low-suction veneer basecoats
  • Is available in a Slow Set formula that sets in 60 to 75 minutes — for use over conventional sanded basecoats

NOTE — USG Structo-Gauge® Gauging Plaster should not be used with lightweight aggregates, Portland cement basecoats or masonry.
