Gypsum is a soft sulfate mineral composed of Calcium sulfate dihydrate (CaSO4:2H20). It is widely used as a fertilized, in mould, in sculptures and as plaster material. Gypsum is a chalk like material and is very light in weight. It is available in crystalline form in nature.
In recent years, the construction sector has witnessed a number of new trends, technology advancements and innovations across applications, all aimed at making construction faster and delivering higher performance. Gypsum although a much older material than the cement & sand plaster has rarely been used extensively in construction industry. Now a days, Gypsum has proved to be a miraculous material aiding interior construction due to its properties.
Gypsum can be directly applied over brick/block work without separate finishing. It is also very easy to apply and level gypsum plaster.
Gypsum reaction produces less heat as compared to cement reaction with water. So there are fewer Shrinkage cracks in gypsum plaster as compared to traditional cement plaster
Gypsum sets quickly (i.e., within 25-30 mins). So painting could be started 72 hours after application of gypsum plaster. Plaster has to be dried up before painting.
Unlike Traditional Cement Plaster, Gypsum plaster doesn’t need any curing saving water and time during construction
Reduces time considerably when compared to conventional cement plaster
Excellent high strength after drying, Durable and Light weight (Reduces dead load on structure)
Perfectly lined, levelled, smooth walls and perfect right angled corners
Careful quality checking is required for cement plaster as cement and sand has to be properly proportioned. In contrast, gypsum plaster doesn’t require same amount of quality checks for application thus reducing supervision efforts.
Gypsum is a ready available material. Natural Sand, which is a raw material used in Traditional cement plaster, is hard to obtain. It is also banned in multiple states in India
Gypsum plaster is highly resistant to fire
Gypsum has low thermal conductivity. This saves electrical cost for heating and cooling rooms in a building
It can be easily applied to decorative purposes also and can be mould into different shapes
When dry POP powder is mixed with water it hardens. This material which can be applied over brick, block or concrete surface to form a smooth surface is called gypsum plaster.
Earlier, a 6 mm coat of gypsum plaster (termed as POP punning) is usually applied on the top of cement plaster to give a smooth finish to it before painting. This is a two stage process and involves various elements like sand, cement and water which has to be mixed onsite. This process is slowly being replaced by a direct application of single coat of gypsum plaster. In gypsum plaster, readymade POP powder is mixed with water and applied directly on the wall.
Gypsum Plaster can be applied directly on any brick, solid or hollow blocks, AAC blocks and plaster boards. Gypsum plaster has good insulation properties, fire resistant and impact resistant. Also, gypsum saves a lot of time during construction and has superior finish. These properties have clearly drawn attention of real estate builders and contractors towards choosing gypsum plaster over traditional cement plaster.
