BOND It

Introduction

Gyproc BOND-it is a bonding agent that enables quick preparation of ceiling and wall surfaces (especially RCC surfaces) within 24 hours. It enables dual benefits of mechanical and chemical bonding, which eliminates the labour-intensive hacking process and the risk of plaster de-bonding.

Features

  • Dual bonding (mechanical as well as chemical grip)
  • The green colour makes identification easy
  • Ready to apply
  • Can be applied on any low-suction surface (concrete surfaces like RCC columns, beams, slabs, shear walls)
  • Works equally well for both gypsum and sand-cement plaster

Benefits

  • Strong durable bonding that eliminates the risk of de-bonding
  • Twenty times faster than hacking
  • Easy single coat application
  • No tackiness requirement for bonding (it dries in 24 hours. Plaster can take up to 10 days)

FAQs

Putty getting hard on application on walls and it is not providing required setting time?

The setting time of Champion putty is 180 minutes. However being gypsum based, it absorbs water from the substrate. Hence to get proper working it is advised to pre-wet the surface (not required for cement based putty). Pre-wetting the surface not only resolves the issue but also provide you with maximum coverage

What is the coverage of Champion putty?

The coverage of Champion putty is 800sq-ft/ 40kg bag at 1 mm thickness (under lab conditions)

How is Gyproc Champion Putty different than other putty?

Gyproc Champion Putty is a single product solution for smoothing all surfaces. It offers numerous advantages compared to the competition. These include:

What is the durability?

Lifelong: This plaster is formulated with high purity gypsum having free from lime and other contamination. Other ingredients and aggregates used also are natural. Thus it provides a strong and durability to the back ground.

What are the extra features of one coat plaster?

  1. It reduced the cost of putty during painting.
  2. Save cost of water curing (no post curing is required)
  3.  It provides thermal and sound insulation and absorption.

What are the Precautions to be taken while using Gyproc Plasters?

a) Tools and water used in the mixing must be clean and free from set plaster and other impurities.

b) Set plaster shortens the setting time and thus reduces the strength of plaster, which sets.

c) Fittings and plugging of all kinds should be done before the proceeding to plaster.

d) Openings, chisels, or other part for cable conduits and others should be cut before plastering.

e) Service piping, conduits, fixing clips and other metallic objects should be adequately protected by applying galvanizing, painting, or applying a layer of PVC mesh in order to protect it from rusting.

f) Once a mix has started to set, mix should not be re tempered neither should a fresh material be mixed with an old one.

What is the Shelf life?

Shelf life of Elite Plaster is 3 months from the date of manufacturing.

Why Gyproc Elite-90 and not any other gypsum plaster in the market?

Gyproc Elite-90 gives you maximum workability owing to its higher setting time (25 minutes) giving you less wastage. Its extra additives provide you with best in class coverage (23-25 sq-ft/25 kg bag at 13 mm thickness). Gyproc Elite-90 is green product and provides you contribution towards 27 LEED points

What is the difference between gyproc plaster and POP?

Plaster of Paris (POP) is a hemihydrate calcium sulphate with no additives in it, which means that setting time is unregulated, resulting in a lot of wastage and also formation of cracks.

Gyproc plasters contain specially formulated additives to take care of high background suction. So, they are used for application on high, moderate or low suction backgrounds like red bricks, concrete blocks, AAC blocks and RCC. The special additives ensure high spread (coverage) and increased setting time which reduces wastage and eliminates shrinkage cracks.

I am not getting coverage of 5 sq-m/kg with BOND-it. What should I do?

One of the main reasons of not getting the desired coverage is over application of BOND-it on the surface. The material should be applied in a single coat after proper stirring of the content in the bucket. Also pre-wet the surface to enhance coverage.

Can BOND-it be mixed with water and applied?

No. BOND-it should not be mixed with water as it decreases the strength between plaster and the substrate. However it is advised to spray some water on the surface before application to remove dust particles and to also increase the workability of BOND-it on RCC surface

Why Gyproc BOND-it is a must on RCC surface?

With increase in hardness of the RCC alongwith with more construction sites moving towards aluminum formwork shuttering and more number of high rise buildings coming up, the process of hacking has become difficult. Also the low suction background of these surfaces doesn’t give proper bonding with the plaster surface. BOND-it provides chemical bonding as well as mechanical key to the applied plaster giving it the desired strength

What is the difference between hacking and BOND-it?

Hacking is the process of roughening the RCC surface to hold the plaster. Since hacking is done manually, it is not consistent, which means there is the risk of plaster debonding.

Gyproc BOND it is a ready-to-apply liquid chemical, containing coarse aggregates that give the mechanical key and chemical bonding to plaster, thereby eliminating the risk of de-bonding.

  • Surface preparation through BOND it as a bonding agent
  • Gyproc Elite 90 as a single coat levelling plaster
  • Gyproc Champion Putty as a smoothing putty to make the surface paint-ready

What is the difference between conventional internal finishing and the gyproc method of finishing?

Conventional methods of finishing employ sand cement plastering and POP punning to level the surface , followed by the smoothing and painting. This method involves a lot of steps and is messy and time-consuming.

The Gyproc system involves a simple three-step process:

  • Surface preparation through BOND it as a bonding agent
  • Gyproc Elite 90 as a single coat levelling plaster
  • Gyproc Champion Putty as a smoothing putty to make the surface paint-ready

What is difference between gyproc plaster and pop (stucco)?

Plaster of Paris (POP) is a hemihydrate calcium sulphate with no additives in it, which means that setting time is unregulated, resulting in a lot of wastage and also formation of cracks.

Gyproc plasters contain specially formulated additives to take care of high background suction. So, they are used for application on high, moderate or low suction backgrounds like red bricks, concrete blocks, AAC blocks and RCC. The special additives ensure high spread (coverage) and increased setting time which reduces wastage and eliminates shrinkage cracks.

Why should we use gypsum plaster instead of conventional sand cement plastering?

Sand cement plastering is a time-consuming and messy affair. You need to procure different raw materials like sand, cement, water and aggregates separately and then mix them on site. Sand cement plastering also requires water curing for at least seven days, which makes the process extremely labour-intensive and time-consuming. What’s more, using fine river sand is not eco-friendly as it involves dredging rivers which causes harm to the environment. 

So, gypsum plaster is fast becoming the preferred option to plaster internal ceilings and walls. It is ready to use, requires no water curing and is labour-friendly and faster than sand cement plastering. It also delivers a crack-free and smooth finish.
