Drywall can also be referred to as plasterboard, buster board, wallboard or custard board. It refers to a panel that is made of gypsum, with or without additives, and it is used to make ceilings and interior walls. It is mixed with fiber, foaming agent, plasticizer and additives that help to minimize water absorption and flammability. The process of making drywall uses various tools including a jab saw, drywall knives, electric drywall saw, utility knives
, cordless drill, sanding pole, drywall screws, abrasive, and non-abrasive sanding sponges. Plastering involves covering up rough walls and uneven surfaces with a plaster during house construction. The plaster is made of plastic material that is a mixture of cement or lime, concrete, sand, and water. The process of putting up drywall is cheaper and less labour-intensive than plastering. The Plastering process requires the use of tools such as a trowel, plastering brush and spatula, a snip, float, hawk or hardboard, and a plastering darby.Looking for the best selection of drywall and plastering tools?
