Default concrete basement wall

Hi all,
My name is Mike and im new to this site and hope someone here can answer my question.
I am in the process of finishing my basement that has poured concrete walls. One of the walls along the stairs is concrete and I want to cover it. Moisture isnt a problem because the garage is over that wall. Can I just skim coat the wall with a light weight plaster to keep stair width to max?

Hi Mike. Welcome to the forums and happy new year.

Shouldn't be a problem as long as there's no paint or sealer of any type. I'd use Durobond 90 but someone else might have better suggestions.

Thanks for the fast reply Toolguy and suggestion of Durobond 90. And yes the wall is free of paint or sealer.
