Topic Subject : Re: speeding up setting time of plaster


One other caveat about adding salt to plaster... The gain in setting time is offset by the change in chemistry. Too much salt will weaken the integrity of the plaster. Typically, I only use salt to harden plaster bandages quicker or to the set of hydrocal when doing public demonstrations.
