Application Instructions

For best results:

  • Use cold water (40°F to 50°F) when mixing.
  • Sand as needed before decorating. Wet sanding is recommended to avoid creating dust.
  • Always use a good quality oil or latex-based paint for a professional finish.
  • For repairs requiring a longer work time (over 6 to10 minutes), use DAP Plaster Wall Patch.

Patching:

  1. Surface must be clean and free of wallpaper, loose paint, loose plaster and all foreign material.
  2. Undercut edges of existing plaster so patch anchors around opening.
  3. Lightly dampen with water the area to be patched.
  4. Add DAP Plaster of Paris to clean water in a clean container mixing 2 parts powder to 1-part cold water (40°F to 50°F). Stir to a smooth consistency. Do not mix more material than can be used in 6 to 10 minutes. Discard any material that has begun to harden.
  5. Apply the DAP Plaster of Paris with a clean putty knife or trowel filling around edges. Remove excess material so that plaster is level and flush with the surface being patched.
  6. For large, deep openings apply a base layer and allow it to dry. When the base layer is dry, wet the surface and apply the finish layer to patch. When thoroughly dry, sand smooth. Make sure the plaster is completely dry and hard before painting.
* Multiple cases may be shipped per package in order to minimize the charge for shipping.

Question & Answers

User Reviews

DAP PP Plaster of Paris
Made in the USA
hot melt rubber (synthetic)
Offers the widest range of application flexibility available. Exhibits excellent processing performance whether manually or automatically applied. Has superior tensile strength, adhesion properties and holding force which ensures consistent, reliable seals. Hot melt adhesive will bond faster to a surface which is referred to as quick-grab or quick-stick. It typically has higher tack (will feel stickier to the touch), but is also softer. It has lower heat resistance, shear resistance, and sometimes UV resistance than an acrylic adhesive. NOTE: it is called hot melt because the adhesive is applied hot by the manufacturer and then hardens as it cools (you do not need to apply heat to the tape yourself).
natural rubber
Properties are similar to that of hot melt rubber, but natural rubber often holds where other adhesives won't (recycled fibers, dust, cold, heat and heavy loads). It provides good overall adhesion and moisture resistance.
acrylic
Offer excellent performance, especially for applications in temperatures less than 40°F and greater then 120°F. It provides excellent clarity, has high shear strength, is usually more permanent/durable even when exposed to moisture, and it ages well over extended periods in fluorescent and sunlight. Since it remains clear for the life of the application and does not yellow over time it is ideal for applications such as sealing white cartons. While it has good initial adhesion it does take 24-48 hours to cure and to achieve its maximum bond strength (has gradual adhesion buildup). Another difference between hot melt rubber and acrylic adhesive is if you fold tape over making the two adhesive sides touch the acrylic adhesive will remain attached to the carrier (e.g. paper, film) while a hot melt adhesive will stick to itself and pull off of the carrier. It is the best choice for clarity, UV resistance and aging characteristics.
silicone
Is great for extreme temperature applications since silicone adhesive can work in continuous operating temperatures from -100°F to 500°F. They also exhibit good chemical resistance, retain electrical properties, and remove cleanly with little or no residue.
zinc oxide
Zinc oxide based adhesive formula is a skin-friendly adhesive which is commonly used on sports medicine tapes.
Thickness, AKA caliper or gauge, refers to the distance from one surface of a tape backing, or adhesive, to the other.
