In this paper, we will define the term “embedment” as it relates to lathing materials and the associated background of the lath and plaster concept. Furthermore, we will apply the embedment concept to various types of lathing materials installed and consider the pros and cons of each style when used. Once these insights are considered, we believe one type of lath works best in terms of plaster embedment, making it the ideal choice for a lath and plaster system.
