Leveling

Introduction

As per Indian Standard Code (IS-2547), gypsum plaster has been divided into two different sets:

  • IS-2547 Part-I: Basic Stucco Plasters
  • IS-2547 Part-II: Premixed Lightweight Plasters

 

Our Elite and Supreme range of plasters complies with IS-2547 Part-II and have lower density as compared with basic stucco plaster present in the market. The average densities of our Elite range of plasters are 700 kg/m3 which are significantly lower than basic stucco (1000 kg/m3) thus providing 30% higher coverage.

Our lightweight plaster range also come with a controlled setting time of 15-25 minutes thus giving you freedom from mixing plaster in small quantities. You can therefore mix a 25 kg bag in one go and use it on-site without generating any wastage. This helps in increasing the productivity of the plasterer by 20-25%.

Our basic stucco product, Xpert complies with IS-2547 Part-I and comes with an elevated setting time of 10 minutes. Thus it provides the plasterer more time to mix and apply the product on the walls. Because of higher setting time Xpert also provides you around 15% less wastage than local POP plasters thus saving you on cost

What is the gypsum plaster 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 of Gyproc plasters?

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.

Gypsum Plastering

Gypsum plastering is a modern day solution to time consuming and ecologically straining process of Sand Cement plaster. Further it saves on POP punning cost which is generally applied on Sand Cement plaster. Gypsum plasters have been used for centuries in the construction space, owing to its excellent and unique properties. It provides excellent thermal and acoustic properties while providing undulation free line and leveled walls with superior finish.
