Nu-Wal Plaster Restoration System

Makes Walls Look Like New Again

The Nu-Wal system conceals cracks and holes, producing a smooth consistent wall surface that looks like new. It works by covering and reinforcing whole walls and ceilings with an estomeric saturant (#2500 coating) and fiberglass mat which can be painted or papered. Cracks do not re-appear, and the surface resists impacts, abrasions, rot, and decay. The non-flammable material is perfect for indoor use and has no toxic fumes. The Nu-Wall system is durable, long-lasting, and easy to install. Repairing plaster with Nu-Wall conforms to all the requirements of ASTM E-1795 and ASTM E-1797 of liquid coatings for leaded paint in buildings.


  • 2 gallons of saturant and 1 roll of 40 ft. mat covers 160 sq. ft.
  • 6 gallons of saturant and 1 roll of 120 ft. mat covers 480 sq. ft.

Customer Questions & Answers

  1. Q I bought this product back in 2007. How long is the product in the cans viable to use?
    Answered by the admin

    You can clean off anything that has settled on the top and then really stir it up. If it is really thick you can add a very small amount of water, but a little at a time. Next, paint a little on a piece of cardboard or wood and see if it dries OK.  Also one clue that it’s bad is that it will really stink.  If it’s gone through a lot of freeze and thaw cycles It’s most likely bad.

  2. Q Can this be applied to repair reoccurring hairline cracks? Can you skim coat re texture over this product? Also seeing how these cracks are reoccuring, when you redo a room with fresh new drywall can this be applied to the problem areas before during the taping process? Would you apply this then tape as usual or apply this in place of tape and sand an feather seams taking care to not sand into the product?
    Answered by the admin

    We have a product KrackKote that is specifically designed to address cracks.

  3. Q Can I skim coat over Nu wall? This will be going over a curved plaster wall and I may have to smooth/refine the curve after application.
    Answered by the admin

    You should be able to do that.

  4. Q how do you treat seams so that the seams do not show
    Answered by the admin

    The procedure to hide a visible seam is to apply a very small amount of drywall compound (with a finger) to the slit area. While still wet, remove as much as possible of the compound with a 4" flexible putty knife. This will leave only a line at the slit area without changing the texture of the surrounding fiberglass mat. If you have any change in the texture you may apply #2500 Coating over this area with the same paint roller previously used.

  5. Q I am renovating a bathroom which has areas of blistering and alligatoring from moisture due to inadequate exhausting. If the paint is sanded and re-primed would this product be adequate to hide these areas?
    Answered by the admin

    That should work fine.

    Saw this product used on This Old House with Bob Villa (very long time ago). Used it to repair the cracked plaster on all the walls in a bedroom. That was 15 years ago. Walls still look like new. Easier to work with than I thought. Goes up relatively fast. HOWEVER walls need to be clean and free from dirt and other contaminants and/or freshly primed with something like Kilz Original. Do that and follow the directions and you have new walls.

    I stole part of a bedroom to make my bathroom larger. So now in the bedroom I had one wall made out of drywall and the other walls of somewhat beat-up plaster. I did work hard ahead of time to smooth out any high spot, fill any crack and replace any loose material, but after the application of Nu-Wal all the walls are homogeneous and you would swear the room is new construction. That was 9 years ago and it still looks great. This stuff rocks and I am back to buy more for my kitchen.
