Welcome friends, to an introduction to Kem Sets, Lightweight plaster, free of silica and lye, fire and soundproofing eco-friendly heat-insulating plaster from Kirk and Jasons Giordano’s plastering channel.
Hello, my friend, Ekoplast was referred to me by a subscriber to try out. I read just the ingredients on the bag of this Kem Set, exterior/interior. I wanted to try it as my mind process for many years as materials exert suggested it might be good for my brother is building a straw bail home.
Plus, I thought the engineers might be on the money with this formula.
I’m sharing what 40 years of stucco applications and printed literature material knowledge have taught me.
Mind you, my knowledge of plaster or stucco materials and applications was not learned from books, but from trial and error, the error means any screw-ups I have to go back and repair the work free of charge.
FYI, I did have schooling for stucco applications for 4 years every Monday evening for two hours. This I don’t count as that was the same time Monday night football was on. Thus more attention was paid to scores than the school stuff.
Besides, I was under 20 at the time.
Moving on, my opinion is, I believe this Kem Set to be a revolutionary stucco product.
I believe folks with sensitive immune systems, or who wish to save the world, if they knew of this choice, would, “no doubt,” demand this stucco. Being eco-friendly or, as some say, green, as in no toxins in the material, is huge. Few folks realize the relevance.
Being eco-friendly means living in a way that is not harmful to the environment. This way of life is becoming increasingly important, as we need to protect our planet from man-made damage. It is possible to be eco-friendly in different areas of our lives. Wikipedia
When I read the ingredients on the bag, I saw no lye or silica, that's mean this stucco. For us professional stucco companies this means, Kem Set plaster won’t turn redwood black within 2 seconds of landing on it, nor will it do the same for anodized windows or doors.
It also means if I get it on my skin, I don’t have to worry about burning my skin and/or the lye entering into my bloodstream transdermally.
Boring stuff, but I can talk about the importance of this fact forever.
I tested it the day before, and that’s all the testing I needed after my mind process the data, which was written on the bags.
I used it for the first time with the intent to learn the day prior.
I was impressed. so much I used it a second time to get this on;
“Another job even more difficult than pillars, in this video.”
FYI, folks applying it on walls is easy. I can almost close my eyes and do that.
However, eyeballing by eye 28 top corners and keeping the additional 28 vertical corners hidden involves more skill than the average homeowner or DIY stucco dude wants to do.
But here is for the world to witness, Not only a 56 corner job but in 100 degrees heat, my kind of day.
How well did I like this product? I had another job two days after we used it in this video, where I had no choice to either get it on me or dress in lots of clothes to protect my skin.
This Kem Set has no Lye in it, so I choose my white thin layer shirt, thinking, so what if it gets on me.
I will include some links to let the engineers explain the benefits. https://kemset.com/en/
I’d give this product about a year before it’s sold at all the major Plastering yards such as “westside building materials” and Lowes and HD.
The sample I did was to check for myself the strength and how well one can steel trowel and float it, all tests were surprisingly beyond my expectations.
