AAC can receive a variety of interior and exterior finishes and coatings. AAC lightweight stuccos are vapor permeable, yet resistant to water penetration. They are applied as a single base coat followed by a color/texture coat. Other exterior materials, for instance, brick, stone veneer, wood cladding, etc., can be anchored to AAC walls. Specialized sand and stone spray finishes have been used for unique surface treatments. For interiors, a number of fine gypsum plaster products are available whose characteristics are compatible with AAC. They are easy to apply as a single hand troweled or spray application. Plasterboard, tile and vapor permeable paints can also be used over AAC. Final veneer coatings can range from structolite and diamond finishes to colored clay paints, adobe & Venetian Marblelino plasters, etc.
