All Float and Set plastering is carried out on internal walls. It is mostly done on brick and block walls. Simply explained, it is the process of turning, say a brick wall, into a fully finished plastered wall. Floating is the application of undercoat plaster over the whole surface of the wall. The float coat is put on with a plastering trowel, usually a stainless steel one.

  1. The first step is putting plumb and straight levels. These are crucial for the process, since the work will be following them. With their help, the float is applied leveled and straight and they are later removed.
  2. The float coat is applied on the whole surface, covering all the texture of the brick, stone or block wall underneath. This coat must be considerably thick and leveled.
  3. Then the whole surface is ruled off with a straight edge, all low spots are filled in and the floating coat is scratched with a devil float. This gives it a key for the next plaster to hold on to.
  4. When the float coat is dry, the wall is ready for set. This is the application of the smooth, finishing coat of plaster.

The type of plastering, mostly used for float and set are:

  • Browning plaster – usually used as a backing coat
  • Bonding plaster – usually used as a backing coat
