There are two main types of plaster, gypsum based and cement based. Cement based plasters are used mainly for outdoors, generally for rendering.
Gypsum based plasters are used indoors only - damp will attack a gypsum based plaster and cause it to crumble.
When plastering surfaces with differing absorption, it is good practice to key the surfaces to be plastered with a PVA bonding sealer. This prevents the plaster setting at different speeds.
At external corners, metal angle beads are used to create a sharp corner. These are stuck to the walls using plaster.
Skimming is a term used for applying a thin coat of plaster to a wall or ceiling to provide a smooth uniform surface.
