Since its beginnings in 1984 in specialist squash court and hard wall plasters, Armourcoat has gone on to create a revival of interest in the ancient technique of polished plasters and to pioneer a unique range of decorative wall finishes which provide comprehensive, quality surface solutions for modern and traditional interiors and exteriors.

Facade Panels - We work with a range of materials suitable for exterior facades. These durable panels can be cast in large thin formats with an outstanding level of surface finish detail, with a strength and durability even greater than natural stone.
External Polished Plasters (PPX) - PPX (Polished Plaster External) is a low maintenance limestone render system that allows you to add a natural exterior finish to your project.
Armourcoat Polished Plasters are celebrated for its smoothness, lustre and decorative richness. They give sumptuous, enduring finishes which can be enhanced by a host of textures and colours, thereby blending or contrasting with any setting, whether classical or modern.
Emulating quarried stone such as marble and limestone is achieved easily, convincingly and cost-effectively – particularly for columns and curves – and with significantly less weight. The incredible hardness and durability of Armourcoat polished plasters ensure years of maintenance-free service with no fear of cracking or fading.
Armourcoat Acoustic® Plaster System - designed to optimise the acoustics of interior spaces. From large theatre halls, offices, classrooms, hotel receptions and private residences the use of hard sound reflective surfaces such as glass, wood and stone can cause excessive sound reverberation which leads to unpleasant noise levels. The correct control of sound can create a calmer and more pleasant environment. The Armourcoat Acoustic® Plaster System offers a clean flat and smooth mineral surface that can be applied seamlessly over large expanses to both flat and curved surfaces and offers excellent sound absorption.
ArmourFX decoative wall panels have evolved from our renowned range of applied seamless wall finishes. Our team of specialist designers and artisan plasterers can work with you to create integrated custom wall panel systems or design statement single artwork pieces.
Whether you are looking for a sculptured 3D form, or a creative stencil technique to overlay exquisite hand-applied Venetian plaster, ArmourFX can provide a unique - but competitively priced – solution.
Armourcoat Sculptural® is a range of seamless sculptural wall surface designs. Armourcoat Sculptural® walls are constructed from a series of pre-cast panels that are bonded to the substrate. Some of the designs are based on a single panel that creates a repeating pattern; others are made from a sequence of different panels that can be integrated together in many different ways to create totally unique sculpted walls. The multiple panel designs make it possible to create non-repetitive seamless sculptural walls where the designs flow and change across the surface just as in nature. As a consequence no two walls need ever be identical.
Armourcoat Sculptural® panels are mineral based and incorporate up to 30% post-consumer recycled content (depending on design), are non-toxic, and are completely non-combustible. The panels are extremely dense and hard with a smooth ceramic-like surface. Once the panels are installed each design can be finished in a range of decorative surface finishes.
ArmourCast is a unique stone finish casting product, offering stunning textures and effects in 3D designs. These hard and durable castings can reproduce almost any architectural shape and design that are too complex for a hand-applied finish.
ArmourColor was launched in 2006 and consists of a range of exquisite, decorative, paint effect finishes, which were developed in extensive consultation with architects, designers and professional decorators to create a harmonized spectrum of finishes, colours and effects. The ArmourColour range Perlata, Escenta and Tactite produce impressive interiors, which combine colour and durability. The finish is dependant on the hand of the applicator.
Ductal® Ultra-High Performance Concrete (UHPC) possesses a unique combination of superior properties including strength, ductility, durability and enhanced aesthetics. This enables designers to develop and realize new sculptural approaches to concrete forms.
Armourcoat Squash court and hard wall plasters has a unique combination of strength and smoothness to provide accurate playing surface and the durability to withstand the constant pounding of balls without deterioration. Armourcoat supplies 85% of the worlds squash court plasters.

Armourcoat creates exceptional acoustics at The Minster Building
Armourcoat surface finishes have played a central role in the comprehensive refurbishment of the iconic Minster Building in the heart of London’s business district.
The interior design, by architects BuckleyGrayYeoman for Ivanhoé Cambridge and its development/asset manager Greycoat Real Estate LLP, has created a major repositioning of the building built around the central eight-storey atrium.
The ground floor reception is approached by a 30 metre long boulevard from the new entrance on the corner of Mincing Lane and Great Tower Street. The original entrance has also been retained to Minster Court piazza.
Measuring seven metres high and up to eight metres wide, the impressive entrance boulevard has a polished floor of terrazzo with bronze inlays, edged by dark oak. Throughout the entrance and reception spaces, the walls are hand-finished in nearly 2,000m2 of Armourcoat polished plaster together with over 600m2 of the company’s Acoustic Plaster System applied to the ceilings.
