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 How much is it?
    Answered by the admin Sizing and prices are listed under the item on the website.
  2. Q Can I apply this over wallpaper that is securely stuck to the plaster or do I need to remove the wallpaper. Also what about plaster walls with old calcimine paint.
    Answered by the admin We do not recommend applying it over wallpaper. The problem with going over wallpaper is that once you put the coating over the paper it can start to release and bubble up. If the walls have calcimine or chalky walls it is necessary to prime the walls with a good penetrating primer before you apply the Nu-Wal system.
  3. Q I have cracks in the existing plaster that a previous owner painted over. Note, the walls are not lathe. They are a 1930s pressed fiber board with a thick plaster coating. Point being, I assume just the plaster cracked, not the wall board. My question is, do I have to do anything to prepare the cracks? They are above grade, so I assume I must at least scrap them down level to the surface of the wall. Not sure if other preparation is necessary before applying Nu-wal.
    Answered by the admin

    To prepare for Nu-Wal fill the cracks with joint compound, etc., and sand flush with the wall. 


  4. Q Is there a product that can clean the application solution off of your hands?
    Answered by the admin

    We don't have a product. You can try hot, soapy water or maybe some rubbing alcohol.

  5. Q How long does it take for the applied solution to set up or dry?
    Answered by the admin

    You should apply the saturant to the area and then fiberglass mat to wet surface. After trimming excess mat at wall meeting, baseboard and/or window, etc, apply the second coat of saturant to wet mat. Allow it to cure 24 - 48 hours before applying a finish coat of paint.

    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.

    Excellent product to restore and preserve plaster walls. Used it over 20 years ago on one room in my 140 year old house and no new cracks have appeared. Just had it applied to 4 other rooms in my house. Requires good surface prep ahead of time to get the best result. Also, the best paint finish after using Nu-Wal seems to be matte or flat. Eggshell will work with lighter paint colors, but higher sheen paint in darker colors seems to highlight any surface texture irregularities – but that’s pretty much the case with any paint over patched plaster.

    We used Nu Wall 20 years ago to repair cracked plaster in our living room. It STILL looks like new. I’m back for more!
