How to plaster with Portland cement adding accelerator

Hi guys and gals, in this step by step video I use an additive for quick setting the portland based product I am applying.

It’s purchased at Westside building materials in Oakland.

Luminite is calcium aluminate cement, which mean it accelerates the curing time of plaster this accelerator is added to portland cement plaster which we mix with additional sand and water on the job.

Some products such as rapid set cement plaster that is sold at home depot or Lowes do not require any additives such as accelerators as they are already in the bagss.

Rapid set cement plaster has everything included you just add water, this is one of the reasons it’s so popular with the big chain hardware stores such as Lowe’s and Home depot they cater to homeowners and contractors with little or no knowledge.

They take the guesswork out, just add water, Also, don’t mix this material more than 3 to 5 minutes! Wonder why? you should! I’m not answering this question as I want to hear your thoughts of why not if you have the time.

The contractor for this project did the complete kitchen remodel. His name is Lee Tolledsrud, He is an excellent remodeling contractor. You may reach him at (510) 325-5262 Lee is great to work with.
