Also, it can be represented in the form of ready-made creamy (liquid).The second type, unlike the first, already ready for use, it must not be diluted.

There are plaster and cement putty.Gypsum is used for finishing the inside of premises for wallpaper or paint, and the cement for the exterior.

But because the cement plaster has the property as the humidity, often the choice stops on it for construction work in the bathrooms.

also different kinds of fillers like vysokozernistye, they are used for leveling walls, they have properties such as strength and good adhesion, and fine-grained or finishing is used for the final surface preparation for subsequent work, using them creates a smooth surface.

  • trapezoidal rule.

for dry mixtures - container for mixing, a drill with a special nozzle-mixer.

Applying the mix do overlap to get rid of express transitions.When applying putty with your hands, you can make vertical, horizontal and even circular motion.Damage

layer which must not be more than 3.2 mm, dries within 12 hours after it is treated with sandpaper.

The video shows a plot of the application process fillings.


To align the walls for painting, Shpatlevanie do likewise as a wallpaper, change only the angle of the application, it should be 60 degrees.

Since the paint is able to transmit to the smallest detail all the defects, for the treatment of the walls with sandpaper using its various types.
