Why You Should Use Bond Kote Before Plastering Your Pool

Posted on Aug 10, 2016 |

bond koteWe are nearing the end of summer and the kids are going back to school, what are things you could do to enhance your pool while it is not being used as frequently? How about a full resurface of your swimming pool to freshen up the look of your pool and having it look brand new. Please read our previous articles on Marquis Quartz and Mini Pebble comparing the different surfaces that we offer to assist in making the most informed decision possible.

In this article I would like to address the importance of Bond Kote on your interior before plastering. It is the most effective way to prevent delamination. Pool plaster delamination is a situation where the new coat of plaster has separated from the old layer beneath.



Go the EXTRA MILE to get the job done right.  On pools with a pre-existing plaster surface, it is highly recommended to apply a Bond Kote prior to applying new plaster coating.  Bond Kote is used to produce a superior substrate to mechanically bond new pool coatings over existing plaster finishes. This ensures that you will have a valid warranty on your surface as is required by the manufacturer. It is the most effective way to ensure a uniform application of the plaster surface.

Here at Advanced Pool & Spa, Inc we use SGM Bond Kote which is a specially formulated two part cementitious coating, designed to be used as an ideal substrate to mechanically bond pool plaster over existing plaster finishes.


  • Superior bonding capability
  • High flexural strength
  • Eliminates excessive substrate preparation
  • Minimizes delamination problems
  • Saves labor and equipment costs
  • Provides even hydration while plastering, resulting in a beautiful finish.
