Dry POP powder hardens when combined with water. Gypsum plaster is the name of the substance that can be used by gypsum plaster manufacturers in India to create a smooth surface on top of brick, block, or concrete surfaces. The ready-made POP powder is combined with water and directly applied to the wall in gypsum plaster. Gypsum plaster has become more popular among builders and contractors due to its excellent quality and time-saving qualities. Gypsum plaster has a number of benefits:
- Can be applied easily:
Gypsum can be put directly over brick or block work without the need for additional finishing. Gypsum plaster is also very simple to apply and level.
- Sets very fast:
Gypsum sets quickly and has a quick setting time (i.e., within 25-30 mins). Therefore, 72 hours after gypsum plaster application, painting may begin. Before painting, the plaster must be completely dry.
- No shrinkage cracks:
Compared to cement and water, gypsum reaction generates less heat. Consequently, gypsum plaster has fewer shrinkage cracks than typical cement plaster.
- No time is needed to cure:
Gypsum plaster does not need to cure, unlike traditional cement plaster, which saves time and water during building.
- High Productivity:
It is significantly faster than traditional cement plaster.
- High Performance:
When produced by gypsum plaster manufacturers in West Bengal, it is an outstanding after-drying with high strength, durability, and lightweight (which helps reduce the dead load on the structure).
- Has Smooth Finish:
It has perfectly straight corners, and smooth, level, and lined walls.
- Reduced need for supervision:
Because cement and sand must be properly balanced, careful quality monitoring is necessary for cement plaster. Gypsum plaster, on the other hand, does not need as many quality checks before application, which reduces the quantity of supervision required.
- Excellent fire resistance:
Gypsum plaster has a high level of fire resistance.
- Reduced thermal conductivity:
Gypsum has a poor coefficient of heat conductivity. This reduces the cost of electricity used to heat and cool a building’s rooms.
- Useful for decoration:
It is easily moldable and can be used for decoration in a variety of ways.
Any type of brick, solid or hollow block, AAC block, and plasterboard can be immediately covered in gypsum plaster. Gypsum plaster is impact and fire-resistant and has strong insulating qualities. Additionally, gypsum has a superior finish and saves a lot of time during building. These features have undeniably influenced home builders and contractors to prefer gypsum plaster to conventional cement plaster. Gypsum is one of the readily available raw materials. Traditional cement plaster requires natural sand as a raw ingredient, but this material is difficult to get by.
