Hello all.

I have goggled filling T&E with plaster and there are a lot of responses saying plaster will corrode the cable?

Is this just a myth? Will I be ok to just clip the cables then plaster over myself!

So have you consulted your electrician or is he a figment of your imagination?

Render or Multibond first then plaster for a smoother finish.....a thick depth of just plaster tends to shrink and crack.

I would always advise a qualified sparks checks any cableing first to make sure everything is correct before filling in as it prevents the possibilty of haveing to re-plaster when forms are being filled in due to faulty circuits.

not 100% sure meself but from reading other threads seems to be no problem.......unfortunately i'm one of those sparks that still uses capping as personal preference to just clipping, though the regs say capping isn't necessary (hard to teach and old dog new tricks i guess).

agreed capping looks nice but if wall being dot and dabbed (95% of time for me) I don't bother. Chases in existing walls, well, the capping is there to stop the spreads trowel (hence plastic capping) and its in a 'cut' in the wall so it's protected.

BUT I agree capping, done with skill and pride, looks best.

Although highly unlikely, it's my understanding that render is thought to be potentially destructive to PVC sheathing of T+E. So directly in plaster is OK but if installing in render use capping/conduit or other mechanical protection.

Just walk in to any builders merchant, Jewsons, B&Q, Wickes etc
and say these words


"a bag of bonding please"


Do you need directions to a builders' merchant, or can you cope on your own?
