Gypsum Plasters

We stock a good range of British Gypsum Plasters in a variety of sizes. Our pack sizes include 1kg, 2kg, 5kg and full pre-packed 25kg bags. We rotate stock regularly so you never get out of date "cure in the bowl before pour" plaster. We stock, Fine Casting Plus, Herculite 2 and Crystacal R.

Each plaster has its own special properties, but for the novice just starting out we always recommend Fine Casting as it is cheap and mistakes cost less! Herculite 2 is the best selling all rounder. Drill into a plaster item to learn more about it, its mixing ratios and cure times.

If you are a major user of plaster please contact us to discuss bulk rates for 1 pallet deliveries and above. We have an established network of merchants over the UK who may be able to help you!
