Finish plaster is a thin topcoat or skim of hard forming plaster that when gone off has a finish that is ready for decorating.
Finishing is the name applied to the material used in the last treatment or coating of a surface. For example a finishing render is the top coat that may contain a colour or texture.
A float coat is another term for a base coat. The first layer of material applied to a surface.
Friable is a term applied when a rendered surface becomes loose or flaky. This is often caused by poor preparation or using incorrectly mixed materials.
