Gypsum Plastering

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

Benefits of Gypsum Plastering Over Sand Cement Plaster

Faster Construction
Sand Cement plaster requires 28 days of water curing and then the surface is smoothened with POP punning which again requires time. With Gypsum plaster you finish your walls and the surface is painted ready within 3 days (days required for complete drying)

Reduced dependency on River Sand
Gypsum plaster comes in ready-to-use bags. Just add water and you are good to go. River sand mining is environmentally harmful and thus banned in many states. Gypsum plaster provides you with the best alternative to the usage of river sand for all your internal plastering applications.

Water Curing
Sand Cement plaster requires water for curing to the tune of 0.6 kg/m2/day. So supposing a project of 1,00,000 sqm you require water of tune of 60000 liters daily. And given that the minimum curing time of Sand Cement plaster is 28 days, the quantity multiplies manifold. Gypsum plaster gives you freedom from water curing thus saving your cost as well as the environment

Shrinkage Cracks Elimination
Shrinkage cracks are a major problem in Sand Cement plaster which is caused due to high heat of hydration and improper curing. Gypsum plaster doesn’t have these problems and hence the walls are free from shrinkage cracks.

GRIHA Certified and LEED points benefit
Gyproc plaster products are GRIHA certified which helps in easy certification from government agencies. Usage of Gyproc plasters at sites also helps in contributing towards 27 LEED points.

Lighter Building Construction
The density of Gypsum plaster (700 kg/m3) is more than 50% less than compared of traditional Sand cement plaster (1860 kg/m3). Hence the usage of Gypsum plaster for wall plastering decreases the structural load on the building.

Reduced Electricity Bills
Our plasters have low thermal conductivity (0.25 W/m-K) as compared to Sand Cement Plaster (0.72 W/m-K). It helps in keeping your houses cool in summer and hot in winter which in turn save energy cost.
