Questions & Answers

Can structo-lite be used as a base under a toilet bowl?

Asked by: Al
I would not use it. The main purpose of this product is to provide finished coating and some insulation. Area under the toilet bowl needs strong base and strength which this product can’t provide. Hope it helps

I have drywall ceilings and walls. Due to "truss lift" from the truss roof I get cracks where the drywall ceiling and walls meet. My painter wants to use Structolite to fill the cracks and said I will never have the problem again because it creates a tight bond. Is this correct?
Asked by: Ramon
That is not correct- You should use plaster weld and cover with mesh tape directly over the visible cracks. The cracks should be dug out so there is no loose material remaining and filled with a layer of high lime plaster. Over this should go sheets of fiberglass mesh sheeting that are at least 18 inches wider that the cracks. The mesh should be fully embedded in compound. After this has dried give the surface a light sanding and the second coat of compound. Again allow to fully dry. One more light sanding and polish the surface. The final step is to use a good alkyd primer and a high quality elastomeric paint so any additional movement of the trusses will not be telegraphed as cracking.

Thank you for your inquiry. USG Structo-Lite is a lightweight basecoat wall plaster. We do not recommend using it as a casting plaster. We offer a variety of casting and molding plasters, as well as Plaster of Paris for casting ornamental molds.

Curiously most Home Depot stores carry metal lath, essential for plastering, yet they do not carry plaster (like Structo-lite) to apply to the lath. Structo-Lite seems to be the preferred product for plaster jobs.
