Adaptavate Breathaplasta

Breathaplasta is a high-performance, quick setting lime plaster that is a healthier alternative to standard internal plasters and helps reduce problems with condensation, damp and mould.  A universal plaster ideally suited to all board and masonry applications, Breathaplasta is versatile and can be used as both base coat and top coat to finish.  Its natural lime and bio based formulation is flexible, highly breathable and moisture regulating (hygroscopic).

The key benefit of Breathaplasta is its ease of use and quick setting formulation, making it an ideal companion product to wood wool and wood fibre boards which can be lime plastered in just one day.  In addition, Breathaplasta's insulating properties further enhance the high thermal performance of such boards for a healthier and better insulated finish.

Breathaplasta can be installed using conventional methods onto most substrates, including plasterboard, wood wool and wood fibre boards, brick, block and stone walls.

Excellent companion product to WOOD WOOL BOARDS.

Ideal for renovation, heritage and conservation or sustainable builds using natural materials.

Detailed Product Mixing and Application


A sample trial should be carried out prior to application to ensure substrate is compatible.


Always wear the necessary personal protection equipment when mixing and applying Breathaplasta. Only apply in temperatures between 5°C and 30°C


• Add 1 bag of Breathaplasta to approx. 11 litres of clean water and mix for 60 seconds. Ensure all dry powder is thoroughly mixed in.  

• Final mix should be creamy in texture with no lumps. Mix can be applied immediately. 

• Apply an even base coat of Breathaplasta using standard plastering tools and techniques. Do not smooth plaster at this stage.  

• Mesh - if required, apply mesh at this stage by flattening into the base coat. Note: mesh not normally required for plasterboard and non-board surfaces.  

• Leave the base coat to set and firm for a minimum of 45 minutes. 

• For boards Evenly apply a second coat. This is the finishing coat. Trowel plaster to a flat and smooth finish. 

• For other surfaces  For multiple coat applications, a total thickness of up to 50mm can be achieved. 

• Additional coats can be applied at a maximum of 10mm thickness per coat. For best results, leave 24 hours between each coat to let plaster set and allow moisture to escape. 

• Evenly apply finishing coat. Trowel plaster to a flat and smooth finish.

• Leave the finishing coat to set and firm, but not fully harden. This will be approx. 45 mins.

• To finish Breathaplasta, glide a clean trowel over the surface of the top coat to flatten and smooth to desired finish.

    Really lovely product. Takes a little getting used to but once on it looks amazing! Our old cottage has had so many positive comments regarding the plaster used and it's such a lovely colour you wouldn't even need to paint it if you didn't want to. I'd highly recommend this product and also the guys at Adaptavate who are so happy to help and give advice.
