Lightweight plaster base

Excellent base over which paints or other finishes should be applied

Gold Bond® Kal-Kore® LITE Plaster Base is a tapered edge gypsum plaster base with a 100% recycled absorptive face paper surface designed to permit rapid trowel application of Kal-Kote® Basecoat, Gypsolite Plaster, Uni-Kal®, and X-KALibur® one-coat plasters.

For speed of installation, GridMarX® guide marks are printed on the paper surface.

  • Lightweight: 25% lighter than original 1/2-in Kal-Kore base.
  • Rapid installation reduces overall construction time.
  • Provides the appearance and surface of conventional plaster at a lower cost than regular plastering.
  • Recommended for use in single-layer applications in residential construction.
  • Tapered edges allow for easily concealed joints using paper tape and joint compound.
  • Veneer plaster systems provide an excellent base over which paints or other finishes should be applied.
  • Manufactured to conform to the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) Specification C588/C1396 and CSA A82.27 for gypsum wallboard used as plaster base materials.
