Imperial veneer finish is a high-strength veneer plaster that is intended to be applied in a single coat over Imperial gypsum base, as a high-strength finish over veneer, or over traditional high-strength sanded basecoats. It is designed to be applied by hand in thicknesses ranging from 1.5mm to 0.75mm. It creates a finished surface that is tough, 3,000 Psi compressive strength, and abrasion-resistant. Imperial® brand veneer basecoat may be applied to either Durock® brand cement board or Fiberock® brand abuse-resistant panels treated with USGTM plaster bonder as a finish in one-coat work, as a finish over Imperial® brand veneer basecoat in two-coat work, or as a finish over Diamond® brand veneer basecoat.


Finishes with a smooth trowel or a texture are advised. In a two-coat veneer system, Imperial veneer finish over Imperial or Diamond veneer basecoats should be chosen when extremely high surface hardness and abrasion resistance are sought. Smooth-coat finishing, however readily textured, is accomplished by making sure that the initial application is carried out with a minimum amount of lap marks and voids. This is because the hardness of this product makes it challenging to remove flaws and cat faces during final troweling. In order to achieve the highest level of surface hardness with traditional plaster assemblies, the finish can also be applied on job-sanded Structo-Base® brand gypsum plaster.

Imperial® Veneer Finish application

Normal drying conditions Apply Imperial® brand tape over all joints (edges and ends). Do not overlap tape at intersections. Align Imperial® brand Type P (pressure-sensitive) tape over the joint and press into place over the entire length of the joint. Eliminate wrinkles and assure maximum adhesive bond by pressing the entire length of tape with a steel finishing knife or trowel. Press the tape into corners with a corner tool. Do not overlap.

Alternatively, attach Imperial® brand Type S tape with spring-driven hand stapler using 9.5mm staples. Use two staples at each end of the tape; staple the remainder at staggered 600mm intervals. At wall-ceiling angles, staple every 450mm to 600mm along the ceiling edge only. For wall-to-wall interior angles, staple every 450mm to 600mm on one edge only, working from top to bottom. Position the tape to bridge the joint at all interior corners without overlapping. For fire-rated assemblies, staple either Type P or Type S tape, 200mm o.c
