It produces a dry efflorescent free surface. Because of its lime content, Vandex Refurbishment Plaster White is ideally suited to plaster refurbishment in historic buildings. It is equally suitable for use on damp areas in both new and existing structures. It has thermal insulation properties and is effective in reducing or eliminating condensation. Vandex Refurbishment Plaster White is ideal for use after the installation of a DPC.
