FYI, anyone interested in why the red tape is on end, the answer is in this video below,
This video explains why scratch lines in the first coat of plaster, whether wavy or horizontal with a Scratcher or Scarifier, makes little difference.
The Scratch lines shouldn’t be vertical.
This horizontal scratching provides what we call in the plastering industry a key to create a natural mechanical bond between both the scratch coat and the brown coat, or referred to as the second coat of stucco.
The stucco surface is very rough with horizontal lines running through it, made from a scarifier (aka scratcher) tool. The scratch coat allows the next layer (brown) to be applied over it, and the roughness provides a tremendous mechanical bond on top of the chemical bond that takes place.
Most folks going over cementitious substrates such as bricks, stones, concrete, or even concrete blocks, also known as CMU blocks or even Cinder blocks. When plastering over these substrates, one applies a skim coat, thus not necessary to scratch the stucco surface.😏
Another reason is that there are so many new cement types that are same-day cementitious materials or back to back same-day systems that, again, scratch marks are unnecessary.😉
Unfortunately, this lack of understanding means some folks are not aware or don’t give a crap about a two coat mechanical bond. 🤔
FYI, When I refer to a key in any of the 900 videos we have, I am “never” referring to a key to a lock or door. That’s got nothing to do with stucco.
An example, with the Interior button board used in the 1950s, the holes were called keys as the plaster mushroomed through them for a better bond.
