P

Parge coat

A parge coat is also known as a skim coat or decorative coat. A parge coat is a thin decorative application of render or plaster on a wall.

Pebble dash

Pebble dash is render finish where pebbles or aggregates with rounded edges are applied to the surface of the render when still wet and left to form a textured finish

Pigments

Pigments are dry powdered materials that when mixed with render or plaster create a coloured finish.

Plaster

Plaster is material produced from gypsum that when applied to wall surfaces makes an ideal base for decorating and finishing.

Plaster bead

Plaster bead is the general term applied to beads used during the plastering process and are nearly always used for wall finishing interiors.

Plasterers bead

A plasterers bead is a bead of shallow depth that is used to reinforce corners and edges when plastering.

Plasticity

Plasticity is a term that describes how easy a material is to shape and to mould.

PVA

PVA stands for polyvinyl acetate and is used as a multi-purpose bonding agent. It can sometimes be used for priming unsound surfaces prior to plastering or rendering.

PVC Pipe Weld

PVC Pipe Weld is an adhesive that should be used when joining more than one PVCu bead to another to form butt joints. For example where a corner bead meets a bellcast bead, PVC Pipe Weld should be used at the joint to form a seal between the two beads and therefore preventing any opportunity for water ingress.

PVCu
PVCu is a is a thermoplastic polymer, unplasticised polyvinyl chloride and is commonly refered to as plastic. It is ideal as a material for render and plaster beads because it is durable, easily worked, does not allow thermal bridging and is sustainable. For example, the Renderplas trade range of white beads are made from 100% recycled material.
