Use appropriate plaster on your walls!

It is no different from a typically used gypsum plaster in terms of structure, look and the method of applying, but its properties are quite a bit different: while standard plaster will stay on the wall warmed up to 50 degrees centigrade, a heat resistant plaster( as the name implies indirectly )will sustain up to 650 degrees centigrade without falling off the wall – that’ s why it should be used on the already mentioned chimney breasts and around fire openings of fireplaces( about 3 meters in every direction from it ). This way you will save money in the long run.
