stucco ADVANCES
The basic compositional characteristics of stucco a.k.a. portland cement plaster has remained relatively the same for over a century. Advances however have come in the standards for materials and modern technology that have improved the quality of the end product:

Much improved manufacturing and quality of cements.
Coalescing materials: Animal hair has been replaced by synthetic fibers.
Better grades of aggregate that are washed of deleterious contaminants and meet industry sieve requirements for best properties.
Admixtures that provide better workability and durability as well as tensile and compressive strength.
Pigments, natural and synthetic that are more stable.
Factory prepared finishes that take the guesswork out of mixing.
Compositional mixes that can be tailored to suit the project.
Corrosion resistant lath and accessories.
