Depending on your project they may be the perfect system to attain a uniform, monolithic, blemish-free, smooth surface with excellent wear resistance.

Their plaster retarder slows the setting time of plasters (including lime based plasters); their plaster accelerator reduces the setting time of plasters; their plaster bonder provides improved adhesion to a wide variety of substrates.
